      Comments about Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter:

      Hated paying the Oly price (lose 1 star), but the product works perfectly as far as I can tell.
      No wiggle, not too tight, focus (on OM-D EM-10 Mark II) is not as fast with 4/3 as with m4/3, but is good for most of what I do. Focus peaking feature of the camera works with the adapted lenses.
      I'd have loved to try the Panasonic equivalent if it were ever in stock!
      Sorry to be so cranky. It's a great product, but I feel gouged.

      Using with GH3

      Comments about Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter:

      I bought this to use my old Olympus four third lenses on my new camera. It works great. The only small thing I ran into was hitting the release a couple times but that just took a quick hand placement adjustment.

        four thirds lenses are available, at a reduced price compared to micro four thirds (most cases). It gives me options, more options for lenses.

        MMF-3 -- a great way to make legacy Oly lenses come alive

            This adapter makes Oly ED lenses (made for the Four-thirds bodies) work seamlessly with the the mirrorless bodies. All functionality is preserved with the E-M5 and the mechanics of the MMF-3 are superb.

            A great way to get some beautifully made lenses that you may not need for your core collection, at bargain-basement prices.

                I am using it with the 150mm f2.0 and the focus speed and accuracy are great. I prefer this lens to the 40-150mm f2.8 Pro zoom. I am ready to explore the other four thirds lenses even though they are heavier. The electronic communication sets the IBIS which is a nice plus.

                    I use this MMF-3 Four Thirds adapter on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 (also purchased here on the used store) so I can use my two Four Thirds kit lenses (14-42mm, 40-150mm) from my older Olympus E-500. I also use an Olympus MF-1 OM adapter (for a vintage prime Olympus ƒ1.4 50mm) on this as well. Works exactly as is it should, factory Olympus quality, totally worth it!

                        Purchased to mount 4/3 Zuiko 50mm Macro and Zuiko 11-22mm Zoom to E-M1. Solid connection, easy to mount/dismount (both from camera body and from lenses), final image quality flawless, no problems at all. Haven't tested weather-sealed aspect yet, but very happy thus far. Expensive for what you get, but the manufacturing precision is reassuring.

                            All reviews I read prior to purchasing this for my EM1 had said that this item will slow down focusing speed by a reasonable amount. I shoot concert/low light situations quite often, and can honestly say it really isn't a big deal. I don't notice any lowered speed of focusing at all. Love being able to use my 4/3rds lenses since I'm new to the micro game.

                                This adapter greatly increases the number of lenses which can be used by your Micro Four Thirds camera, since it allows completely automated operation of any existing Four Thirds lenses on a Micro Four Thirds camera body.

                                The only thing to remember is that the four thirds lenses are heavier than their micro four thirds counterparts.

                                I use it for attaching an Olympus Four Thirds 14 - 60 mm zoom to my Olympus Micro Four Thirds body. Works perfectly!

                                  I use this with my OMD EM-1 because I have some old Olympus 4/3's lenses and it works just fine with them. Solid, no loose feel, it's like part of the camera. All lens functions work so well that I'm thinking about finding some older used pro lenses to save some money. Even focussing hasn't been an issue from me with the older lenses.

                                      As far as I could tell, there is no cropping or loss of light using this adapter. It works as advertised. However it did slow down the autofocus of my Olympus OMD EM1, especially in lower light (not darkness) or in "difficult" focusing conditions. This adapter will hold me over until I can afford to buy micro-4/3 lenses that replaces my old 4/3s! But if you have the $$... don't step halfway in the pool like I did. Jump in!

                                          Perfectly solid & weatherproof Adapter mount for 4/3 Lens to Micro 4/3 lens on Olympus E-M1 Camera.
                                          It makes beautiful pictures with your 4/3 lenses
                                          on mirrorless E-M1 camera without any problems.
                                          Keep those older 4/3 lenses of better quality too .

                                            I have 2 very nice Olympus 4/3 lenses and was thrilled to learn I could still use them with this Olympus adapter on my micro 4/3 Panasonic GH4. Even the auto focus still worked! Well worth the purchase.

                                              Got this rather than the MMF-2 because I anticipate using it in pretty bad weather. It fits my E-M1 nicely and my (one and only 4/3) lens, the 50-200 F/2.8-3.5 SWD focuses quickly (but not fast enough for birds in flight). I quibble with the price, though. Expensive for a passive feedthrough.

                                              The unit works great, I would recommend it for anyone using Pen PL 5 that want to use E series lenses.
