5.0 out of 5 stars Fotodiox Adapter for the Lumix G1, December 29, 2010
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)
I picked up a Lumix G1 here on Amazon, body only. The lack of affordable lenses from Panasonic is a turn-off, so I got the Fotodiox adapter and then picked up some older but good Olympus lenses on eBay. My primary interest is in nature closeups, so I looked for, and found, an Olympus OM 50mm F3.5 Auto-Macro lens for just $55.00 in perfect condition. Now, yes you don't have auto focus with this adapter, but in most cases in macro-photography you are using manual focus anyway. Well, after the lens arrived, I attached the adapter and lens to the G1, and it works just incredibly well. The adapter is very well machined, everything fits and feels like it was designed for each other. Nothing is loose, nor binding tight, just right. And, the price for the Fotodiox is right!! After I played with it for a while, I recommended it to a family member who has a G1 and a bunch of Olympus OM lenses, and she is happy with it too. Just remember in the G1 Custom setup screen to have the "Shoot W/O Lens" set to 'ON', otherwise you will get an error message when you turn on the camera, "Please check that the lens is attached correctly" Great quality, great price.

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!

I believe the OLYMPUS ZUIKO DIGITAL 35mm f3.5 MACRO lens is a four thirds mount lens, not an OM lens, so you will need a four thirds to micro four thirds adapter to use it with a GF1. They make these adapters full manual everything (including focus) but also for higher price, retain most auto functions (see Neewer's offer at http://www.amazon.com/Neewer%C2%AE-Plastic-bayonet-Adapter-Panasonic/dp/B00CHZ44SA/ref=sr_1_20?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1404774091&sr=1-20&keywords=four+thirds+to+micro+four+thirds+lens+adapter)
