Thanks, Tedolph. I have the Elmar 50 and the 135. Also the Summicron 35 and the 50 DR. When you collapse the Elmar 50, is there a risk of it hitting the sensor, or is there some structure in the way?

the outer barrel of the lens (a Russian copy of the Elmar) hits one of the internal baffles in the "mirror box" of the camera. I just put a piece of tape around the end of the lens barell so I can't retract it all the way.

What camera do you use them on?

E-pl1- an excellent digital back for manual lenses.

I'm in the market for an OM-D.

Don't bother-pick up and E-pl1 for $150.00 and be done with it.

The sensor is more than good enough with the light AA filter.
