If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: large format to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3) provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. Its all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. It allows T-Mount Lenses, Microscopes, and Telescopes to fit on a micro 4/3 (MFT) system camera body.
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode micro 4/3 body. Infinity focusing is allowed.

Pros- Fits perfectly on both ends, has the correct focal length for M42 threaded camera lenses, solid metal construction, threads are reversible for M42 reverse threaded lenses, enough room in the adapter to use as an eyepiece projection adapter for telescopes
Cons- Telescope users may be disappointed because the focal length of the adapter is too long to allow telescopes to focus to infinity nixing direct projection photography(read below for details)
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a way to hook your old Pentax M42 lenses to your MFT camera, buy this! It works perfectly and the focal length of the adapter correctly projects the image plane of the lens to the camera sensor. (i.e. lenses will focus to infinity.)
If you are a telescope user looking for an adapter then read on, there's a couple things you need to know: - This is a LENS adapter. It is designed so the image plane of a 42mm threaded CAMERA lens (i.e. old Pentax) will focus on the...
I purchased this adapter to allow use of my Panasonic Gf1 with an Orion Starmax telescope, giving me a 1250mm super telephoto. It works perfectly. The adapter is well made and attaches to the camera just as you would attach a lens. If you intend to use this with a telescope, don't forget that you will also need to purchase the appropriate T-adapter to replace your telescope's eyepiece. That adapter will screw into this adapter, the assembly will attach to your camera, and the camera then replaces the eyepiece of your telescope. If you have any old T-mount lenses lying around, you can attach those to your micro four thirds camera via this adapter as well. In the camera's settings menu, set the option to "shoot without a lens" to on. Focusing is done manually on the telescope or T-mount lens. Aperature priority on the camera functions normally.
Attaches smoothly and firmly to my Olympus OMD-EM5, and screws securely onto the T-adapter for my telescope. Initial test pictures worked fine. It's exactly what you want and expect a simple adapter to be.
