The only thing that could make a rendering difference is if the mount adapters are significantoy out of spec...

I second that. It can be easilly seen on the chinese MMF clones sold on Fleabay. They do a decent job with most lenses, but they can give horrendous results with a 9-18mm or 7-14mm. No such problems with original MMF adapters.

I highly value Mr Cicala's insights, but on that specific one - I am not sure we are talking about the same thing. He is talking about "various high quality adapters", which is not "OEM made by Olympus". It's "different levels of skinning the client for a piece of machined metal".

This is the first time that I have read this! I have the Viltrox adapter (MMF clone) and my experiences with my 7-14 and 11-22 (before I sold it) were not very good when used with an earlier EPL1 and latterly an EPL5. Very soft edges, especially with the former lens. Worked OK with my 12-60 and 50-200 though.

A good reason to get the EM1 with free MMF3 adapter (in the UK) then!
