M4/3 adaptor stuck on lens!
Jun 6, 2014

At the advice of a guy in a camera shop, I bought el Cheapo 4/3 to m4/3 adaptor instead of stumping up over £130 for an Oly or Panasonic one. And its arrived, and works fine. I was eager to see how my Zuiko 35-100mm lens would get on mounted on the E-M1. And its pretty good news I think - its not as fast as maybe it was on the E5, bu there isnt much in it.

However, now the thing wont come off the lens. There is a little release button on the left side as you can see here. but its not releasing. The red dots are lined up so have to assume its locked in place properly, plus the AF worked so it must be.

Any ideas here? I dont care much about the adapter, but am certainly leery of damaging the lens. I have already abused it enough - see an earlier post about it flying out of camera bag.
