Olympus BCL 15 f8 on Sony
10

People have been able to adapt the Olympus Body Cap Lens to Sony cameras thanks to the shorter register distance.
Using a relatively cheap adapter you can mount MFT lenses on Sonys. Am I alone in thinking that those MFT/Sony adapters are ugly?

A much pleasing result can be obtained simply drilling two holes in a thin and even cheaper M42-Nex adapter.
This is a permanent but reversible mod that uses two of the existing screws in the Olympus lens.
You need to choose those screws that do not interfere with the bayonet lips.
The infinity and hyperfocal positions work as expected: sheer luck!
