No experience with Cannon, but my Pixco adapter for Konica AR lenses is a bit loose and has trouble latching on many non-OEM lenses. Fotasy brand adapter (bought from who were cheaper than eBay on that item - also might consider a set of cheap extension tubes and extra rear lens caps there as well) turned out to be much tighter and w/ much fewer latching problems. Based on this experience, I would not buy a Pixco, but they may do better on other mounts.

Might as well add that a couple of rear lens caps bought from HK via eBay are terrible, and had to be padded with a couple of layers of stick-on foam sheet in the bottom to get enough pressure to stay on the lens bayonet. Two rear caps I got from RainbowImaging seem to be working as well as the OEM Olympus caps.
