Legacy lens mount adapters

This page lists lens mount adapters that enable the use of legacy lenses on Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds system camera bodies.

This page is still early in its development and we are seeking supplier and product details for all relevant legacy lens adapters. Andy Elliot has provided a summary of what he knows is available:

Four Thirds

Olympus OM (like the pukka Olympus version), Canon FD (with a correction lens or without but does not focus to infinity), Nikon F, Minolta MD/MC (Needs to use a locking screw and does not have a pin to stop the lens fully turning 360° when the lens is disengaged), Contax C/Y, Pentax K, M42/Pentax Screw, Leica R, Voigtlander Retina DKL, Voigtlander VM., T-Mount Screw (T2), Tamron Adaptall-2, Exacta (Exakta?), Pentacon 6, Fujinon Bayonet (old defunct SLR format - hard to find), Novoflex (Novoflex also manufacturers a range of adapters too).

Micro Four Thirds

The above plus:

Pen F, Canon FD (without correction lens and does focus to infinity), Leica M bayonet, Leica M39 screw, Minolta MA AF (aka Sony A), Contax G, Praktica B, C-Mount, Telescope 1.25" eyepiece

Focus Confirmation

Some mount adapters come with electronic interface adapters which provide focus confirmation signals. These come in two basic varieties, those which are programmable for the focal length of the attached manual lens, and those which only have the focal length fixed at 50mm. There are also conversion kits which allow one to attach these electronic adapters to the lens mount adapters.

There are both four-thirds and micro-four-thirds versions of these adapters. Some of the four-thirds adapters are incompatible with Olympus E-1 body and with the Leica/Panasonic bodies.
