Presumably it is ok to buy one of the older adapters (MMF1 or 2 - these seem to be available used quite cheaply)?. I understand they are not weather-sealed.

Yes, any of those, plus the Panasonic adapter (which is an MMF-1 at a lower price), will work just fine. Problems come when machining tolerances are not respected, and this seems or at least seemed to be the case with the Viltrox chinese adapters. You won't see the difference except under 10-11mm, but when you see it if you get a bad one, the result is catastrophic.
