There was a time a few years back when mounting MF legacy glass via adapters on MFT cameras was quite popular. My recent eBay selling experiences suggest to me that the market for legacy glass on MFT's is pretty much done.

Probably due to all the new excellent AF glass introduced by Oly and Panny (+others) recently.

Anyone else experienced this?

This is interesting observation. Did you come to conclusion based on M43 adapters sales?

Looking for equilibrium...

Haha. No I came to it after trying to sell several MF legacy glass on eBay at what I thought were reasonably competitive prices and getting no response!

I've never had luck selling on ebay with reserve or a minimum price. If I'm going to auction anything I just put it up there and let the market take care of it. I think it's very rare that items go for significantly less than what they're worth.
