Using the Fotodiox adapter on my E-1

Hi all after searching the web came across this adapter,read some great reviews about it so i purchased one through amazon uk.

Waited for delivery which was very quick 6 days,when i attach the adapter to the camera all is great with a good fit without any play....but when i attach my OM 28mm f2.8 wide angle lens there is alot of excess play which you can actually see it move!!

I have emailed the company through amazon but i have not had a reply as of todays date.

Is this normal to have this amount of play or have they sent me a badly manufactured adapter.

Has anyone here brought this adapter,does it have this play in the mount or is it a tight fit? are they all like this?.

Couldn't afford to buy the Olympus own as here in the UK they cost between £99-£130 which is way to much as i only paid £155 for my second E-1 complete with SHLD-2 with 1932 clicks your help and advice please.

Happy shooting.
Ash.
