Olympus OM to 4/3 adapter made of gold?
Jan 18, 2013

I'm a mainly OM film shooter these days and have a bunch of good OM glass. Now I have a chance to use also some m4/3 cameras and thought that maybe I should get an Olympus OM to m4/3 adapter for using my OM lenses for additional lens options.

Went to camera shop and OMG! Olympus OM-MF2 adapter costs over 200 euros. Wth!? is it made of gold or something?

So did a quick check on ebay and adapters there go from 15 euros to 70 euros average. Has anyone had any bad experiences with the cheapest adapters (mostly made in Hong Kong and China)?`What are the general opinion of what adapters to get?
