I just purchased a couple of Fotodiox adapters for my OMD so I'd be able to use my old Zeiss Contax lenses. I'd like to know what I should expect regarding IQ using an adapter and I'm not sure what effect the additional inch between the lens and sensor has. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Nice combination!

2 questions, since you have more than one adapter:

  • Do your adapters have brass mounts on both sides?
  • Does any one of them wobble or turn, when you focus or change aperture?

I have 2 adapters of different brands and both have brass on 1 side only and both wobble and can be moved. So I am looking for a better brand, preferably one less expensive than Novoflex.
