Cheaper than the name brands,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Olympus OM Zuiko Lens to Micro 4/3 Olympus PEN and Panasonic Lumix Cameras (Camera)
This adapter does the job. It's a lot cheaper than the Olympus or Panasonic "official" adapters. My only caveat is that it's a bit of a tight fit: affixing it to the camera body, it is a bit too tight, and it needs a firm twist. But it's OK.

Im planning to use this adaptor for my GF1 with an OLYMPUS ZUIKO DIGITAL 35mm f3.5 MACRO lens, i dont know if you've tried it, but i see you use Olympus lenses so, would you recommend this adapter? Thanks!

No!! This adapter is for Olympus OM lenses, made for film cameras. It is not for Zuiko Digital lenses which have a different mount.
Your 35mm f3.5 lens is a 4/3 (Four thirds) mount. You need an adapter for converting 4/3 to micro 4/3 which is what new Olympus Digital, and Panasonic cameras are. You need the Panasonic DMW-MA1 Lumix G Four Thirds DSLR Lens Mount Adapter or the Olympus MMF-3 4/3 to Micro 4/3 Adapter, either of which will work for you. Best of luck!
