E-M1 problem with legacy lens
4 months ago

Hello,

I just got a new OMD E-M1 and have been trying to use some old legacy lenses that I have previously used on my OMD E-M5. All of them work fine except one. I have an old Vivitar 100 mm macro lens, sometimes referred to as the "plastic fantastic" When I mount the Vivitar, it's like I have the lens cap on the lens, just a black viewfinder. The lens was originally in Canon FD mount and I am using the Fotasy FD-M4/3 adapter, which works just fine on the E-M5.

Anybody got any idea what is going on?

Thanks,

Bob Steiner
