If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: large format to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3) provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. Its all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. It allows Canon FD Lenses to fit on a micro 4/3 (MFT) system camera body.
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode micro 4/3 body. Infinity focusing is allowed.
Compatible Cameras (Including, but not limited to): Olympus PEN E-PL1, E-PL1s, E-PL2, E-PL3, E-P2, E-P3, E-M, OM-D, E-M5, E-M10, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, G2, G3, G10, GX1, GH1, GH2, GF1, GF2, GF3, GF5, GH4, Panasonic AG-AF100 Mirrorless Digital Cameras, Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC)

Note that using a full frame lens on a micro 4/3 camera will effectively double your focal length. I.E. My 50 mm f 1.8 is equivalent to a 100mm when mounted on my M4/3 camera (and will be a smaller aperture than 1.8 but I'm unsure of the math for that one).
The mount does have a slight amount of "play" in it when connected to the M4/3 mount on an OMd em-10, but it is not an issue for me. I am very pleased with this purchase, it's worth every penny.
Shooting with legacy glass is a blast and allows you to have access to some high end lenses for a fraction of a new prime M4/3 lens, especially FD mount lenses. Of course you'll have to give up autofocus, but it's still a lot of fun shooting with my old prime FD mount lenses.
For those curious; the image quality from both my 28 & 50 mm lenses is surprisingly decent and the 50 produces a very pleasing bokah since it's now a 100mm equivalent.
I'm happy to report it works flawlessly with my Canon FD lenses and extension tubes. Everything fits perfectly, and works just as it should.
One note for those considering purchase: If you look at the pictures, you'll see there is a ring marked lock <--> open adjacent to the lens mount.
This is used to activate the Canon FD lens aperture lever *after* the lens is mounted. Set this ring to "open", mount the adapter on the camera,
then mount the lens. Finally, move this ring to the "lock" position, and you can see the diaphragm close down as you adjust f-stops on the lens.
I leave it set to "lock" while using the lens; you may wish to switch it to "open" so the lens opens fully for focusing and composition, then move
it back to "lock" to take the exposure at the desired f-stop. This is not unlike some pre-set lenses with manual apertures that used to be common.
Function with my Olympus E-PL1 couldn't be any more straight-forward. Set the camera for Aperture-preferred exposure, focus normally and
press the shutter button. It works flawlessly. The balance of the lens-camera combination is excellent, and picture quality looks to be superb.
Anybody with a collection of FD lenses would be well-advised to pick up one of these adapters.
(I originally thought that the "Open and Lock" positions were just for mounting the adapter) Now you can manually adjust your f/stops. An ideal way to use legacy lenses or different manufacturers lenses that you already own. This is well built and will serve my needs for many years.
At this price point, I can buy a couple more to equip all my Canon FD wide angle lenses.
You cannot go wrong with this adapter!
1) I placed the adapter on my Canon FD 1.4 mm lens
2) I made sure the "Shoot without lens" option was set to "on" on the camera setup menu
3) I Removed the standard Panasonic lens and mounted the Canon/adapter combo exactly as I would the Panasonic lens
4) I switched the focus ring on the top of the camera to "manual". when I pressed the shutter 1/2 way, an icon appeared on the LCD indicating that that the right button on the 4 way controller woulad magnify focus. I pressed it, the image was magnified for about 5 seconds, then went back to fill screen.
Focusing with the Canon 50mm 1.4 was quite easy thanks to the excellent resolution of the G1 LCD and EVF. Tip: focus with the lens wide open and then stop down to desired aperture.
So how was the image quality? I shot several images with the Canon and the standard Panasocnic 14-45 mm lend back to back. The images shot with the Canon lens were slightly sharper at the same aperture (5.6). However, the Canon images seemed a little less color-saturated than those with the Panasonic lens, which is fine by me since I prefer my images that way and color saturation is easily adjusted.
Bottom line: I am thrilled to rediscover the joys of my 33 year-old Canon 50mm 1.4 FD. With the 2X conversio factor, I now have a very fast and sharp portrait lens. the Lens is significantly heavier than the Panasonic lens but it desn't seem mismatched with the G1 body. At just $40, it is an excellent value and I just don't see spending $200 for some of the other brands.
