M43 to eos adapter

PostFri Sep 14, 2012 2:21 am

Does anyone know if we can use any M43 to EOS adapter on the BMCC m43?

I searched on ebay but it seems the adapters are only suitable for Olympus/Panasonic micro 4/3 to EOS...

This is for EF lenses. But not EF-S lenses.

Maybe this description is more reliable.

Well, that doesn´t seem very reliable... I was thinking about something like this:

(sorry for the never ending link)...
My question is, are there different kinds of m43 mounts, since they say:

"Suitable for: Panasonic: G1, GH1 GF1, G2 G10
Olympus: E-P1, EP-2, E-P1L"

I'm pretty sure a micro 4/3 mount is a micro 4/3 mount, regardless of the camera. 4/3 is a different mount to micro 4/3 though.

The issue with a M43 to EOS adapter is the electronics for the EOS lens, unless it is a manual lens ala Rokinon.

This seems to have even better control than the camera does, since it enables IS and actually shows the aperture value

Thanks for the info guys!

I haven´t thought about that issue, controlling the iris of the EF lenses...
