                This adapter works fine. When connected to a Panasonic Lumix GH3 there is a little slack in twist movement but none in focal length. I am using it with Pentax bellows and a Minolta 75mm enlarger lens to copy Kodachrome slides. The adapter is all metal, well made, and is great value for something that should be useful for many years.

                    Locks in place fine, but lose on camera mount, wobbles back and forth. I returned the first copy, and tried another copy on in store display G5 and it was also loose.

                    Probably a bad batch since it has decent reviews.

                      This review is knowing exactly is based on I knew exactly what I was getting. This Micro Four Thirds adapter feels sturdily built and attached to my Helios m42 58mm perfectly. It is a great standard, no frills adapter.

                      Works.

                      Mostly. Will not take SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 correctly (inner lens element jams into adapter flange when focused long).

                      Also be mindful of small shavings produced during first uses. I don't blame Dot Line really, just nature of fresh metal-on-metal threading. A few workings, off-camera, cleaned it up.

                      But very solidly engages my AF100, no slop at all. Which is all one hears about some other adapters.

                        A well engineered piece of equipment. Its most important feature is the flange on the lens side of the adaptor to accomodate the aperture pin. Most other similar adaptors require lens or adaptor to be modified otherwise you can only use your lens wide open! Balance is fine and it gives me the opportunity to use my fine collection of prime lens on my Olympus Pen!
