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?

No I find the opposite to be true. When I bought my e-pl1 two years ago, KEH consistently had 6 or 8 pages of Canon FD lenses for sale, two or three pages were comprised just of the different variants of the fast fifties.

Now they're down to 2 pages of canon lenses and the prices have nearly doubled.

I'm curious about the selling experience you had that led you to your conclusion.

Since you're curious here's a link to the add (hope I'm not violating any rule here):
