Olympus MF-1 overview

  • 1Description

The Olympus MF-1 OM Adapter permits the adaption of certain Olympus OM lenses to be used with the E-1, Evolt E-300, and E-500.

When using this adapter, Autofocus (AF) is not available, Stop-down metering is used and Spot metering does not work properly. Although it is possible to use A (aperture priority AE) mode in auto exposure, the aperture display is not available and the aperture display in M (Manual) is not available. In P (Program AE) or S (Shutter speed - priority AE) mode, the shutter releases, but the auto exposure control does not work. The distance scale on the OM system lens may not indicate the actual distance, so users should always use the viewfinder for focusing.

    Olympus MF-1 reviews

    MF-1 OM Adapter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job With this adapter, I'm able to use three OM lenses that were given to me by a co worker. The adapter fits quite snugly on my E500. The three lenses all work great, taking into account the limitations of the auto focus and metering. Worth the price if you have old OM lenses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unsharp Eyes = Unsharp Images I am an old OM 1 and OM4 film camera user in my past. Now I shoot digital but have a bunch of really sharp Olympus Zuiko lenses that now work on my digital body but only in the manual mode, meaning you need to also focus manually. That would be fine if my eyes hadn't of aged worse than the rest of me! Olympus tells me they do not make a split screen focus for digital cameras yet (which is what my film cameras had), so I find my images to be just off a tad for my liking. Olympus said I could purchase a different diopter I believe was the word, which would fine tune the focus a few more notches. I don't think that would help if your eyesight is off and I shoot without my glasses.The concept is great but it's lacking for me unfortunately:(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly great accessory I have tried this on seven lenses, five Zuikos listed on the chart for the adaptor and two of my other manual favorites. All of them work very, very well. The only thing to watch for is the proper f/stop range. All of the lenses seem to lose sharpness if the apature is too large or small. A few minutes with a good test subject will let you get it worked out for each lens, though. It is great to have so many lenses at my disposal and all of them with a larger reach than before.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For limited usability of old OM lenses This adapter permits limited usability of old OM series lenses on new Olympus digital SLR cameras. However, it does not magically turn a manual-focus lens into an auto-focus lens. The combination has metering and other limitations. Because the image area of a digital SLR is about 1/2 a 35mm SLR the power of the lens is effectively doubled. So, it's not much good for wide-angles. It's best use is if you have some OM long telephoto lenses that you'd like to continue to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old lenses renewed! The OM adapter has brought my old favorite OM lenses to life again. This great tool allows my old 24mm, 50mm and 135mm to fit snugly on my digital SLR (E-500). The adapter is superbly made and easy to put on and take off my digital SLR. I am enjoying the challenge and the experience of again manually adjusting my settings and focusing on my subject. It is a different experience then taking pictures with a digital lens. The old lenses give your photos a different quality and make the experience of shooting different as well. It is a tool I would recommend to anyone who has lenses from their OM days stashed away or anyone who would just like to experience the control and quality you can get with these old relics

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, worth every cent Fotodiox Adpater:The Fotodiox adapter is made of plastic on one side and stainless steel on the other. The adapter is well made and stands out from the masses of full plastic adapters *. 1.When using the Fotodiox adapter with my OM 35-70mm f3.6 lens (400g), it works fine, however it does not feel like the lens has an extremely tight fit with the camera body. 2.When using the Fotodiox adapter with my OM 90mm f2 macro lens (a heavier lens 550g), especially with an 65-116mm telescopic extension tube I have noticed a bit of movement between lens and body and gave me a sense of uneasiness a lack of confidence. In shooting situations this could be distracting.3. When I tried to use the Fotodiox adapter with my OM 300mm f4.5 telelens (1000g), and turned the focusing ring left and right the lens simply came off the body. I re-attached it 3 times assuming I had made a mistake by not turning it completely etc. and even considered the lens mechanism for securing the lens to be at fault. To verify this I ordered the Olympus MF-1 adapter from B&H.Olympus MF-1 Adapter:The Olympus MF-1 is a different grade of quality compared to the Fotodiox adapter stainless steel product on both sides and it looks and feels really well engineered. When I put the MF-1 adapter on my Olympus E-5 the adapter found its place straight away. When securing the adapter it felt really tight as if it became part of the body. So far so good. Then I attached the 300mm f4.5 (1kg) lens and focused for a good 5 minutes and took several images the lens (even though officially not supported by the adapter) stayed in place and delivered nice images. The lens actually felt bonded to the camera. Most importantly the Olympus adapter has given me a sense of confidence so that I can focus on taking photos rather than worry about the equipment. I guess you get what you pay for and usually IMHO it is best to stick to manufacturer brands. In my case Olympus lens + Olympus adapter + Olympus camera. Price - The Olympus MF-1 was purchased at B&H - even though more expensive than other options, but still affordable in my book, it was worth every cent. Actually I will be ordering a 2nd MF1-OM adapter for my other camera or use it as a back-up. Summary: If you can afford the Olympus MF-1 adapter it should be your preferred option, especially for frequent usage and heavier lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! A god sent for those of us who made investment in OM lenses and want to use them on E-Series Digital SLRs! Works like a charm. Rock solid feel and by using manual mode I have total control over my shot! Manual focus and arpurature still allow the camera to auto set exposure time. No degradation of image that I noticed. A great way to keep the old lenses useful in a digital world.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory I bought this adapter so that I could use my Olympus OM lenses with my Olympus E5 DSLR. This adapter works as it is intended to and the build quality is great. The instructions that come with it are straight forward and easy to follow. I read one review that said it was a little difficult to remove the adapter from some lenses. I found that this isn't a problem if you leave the adapter mounted to the camera and remove the lens from the adapter first. I also found that even though the 300mm f4.5 OM lens is not included on the recommended list of lenses that it will work with, it will work. Just be sure to use a tripod if you really want sharp images. Also note that F/stops will not be displayed on your camera because there is no digital interface with the OM lenses. Bottom line is that this is a great accessory for your Olympus DSLR and you'll get some great images using the older OM lenses.
