Yes, but for the FT users. Let them keep their own forum where they can discuss their lenses and adapters problems.

That's a ridiculous position. If the lens works on m4/3 it makes all the sense in the world to discuss it's use on m4/3 in m4/3 forum. I for one use 4/3 40-150 on m4/3 and I am quite happy with it. I don't have 4/3 camera, nor intend to have one.

You are taking my quote out of context. What I don't want is the kind of split advocated by Almaric : GH3 plus OM-D which he names pro would merge with FT users and the other consumer mft cameras would get their own forum. I'm against a split of the mft forum. FT users getting an mft camera can join or remain in the Olympus SLR talk forum If they want to discuss their adapters problems on their own.

It doesn't make much sense to get non native lenses if you are only an mft user, especially if you have kept another DSLR system along with your mft camera (and we are a lot, probably more than there are FT users).

In case you don't know people use literally tons of legacy glass on m4/3, not just 4/3 lenses. I guess they didn't get the memo.

Thank you, I know about it, since I own five legacy lenses myself, in fact that is the very reason which drew me into mft at first. Although, judging by the posts appearing now in the forum, there are probably much less folks still using legacy lenses now that the system has grown and that so many native lenses are available. I see much more talk about the new native lenses than about adapters and legacy than there were two or three years ago.
