Aside from my new OMD, I have some Leica M glass which I use in my M9.  I decided to take advantage of being able to shoot with the Leica glass.  This necessitated getting an adapter for the OMD.

The local photography shop had a $79 (US) Chinese adapter.  After trying it in the store I noticed, the fit was far from perfect.  There was a bit of shake with the lens attached to the adapter in turn attached to the OMD.  Just didn't like the feel of Leica glass on the OMD.

I ordered and received a Novoflex adapter, $257 (US) and received it today.  The fit and finish is outstanding the the Leica glass now feels totally secure on the body of the OMD.  I've now expanded my set of lenses for the OMD.

Happy that you are happy, but no reason to pay so much for a bit of tubing in my opinion. I first got a Fotodiox adapter for the Minolta MD lenses I used to use with MFT. That one didn't allow infinity focus. But no problem. I got a refund without even having to send it back.

I then ordered one from Rainbow Imaging instead. Works perfectly. Price was about USD 25. Lots of people here using Rainbow Imaging adapters with good results as far as I know. Same is probably true about Fotodiox. I just happened to have a bit of bad luck in that case.
