    Default best adaptor for full use of the Zuiko 14-54 I on the OM-D EM-5

    Shopping for Auto Focusing adaptor, and will consider third party, to use my first series Zuiko 14-54 on my OM-D EM-5.

    Presuming Olympus MMF-3 better option, would like to pay less for next best (if such exists).

    Thanks.

    Like the new look!

    I bought one from China off Ebay. Cost not much with free shipping and works perfectly. If you need one that is water resistant though.
    Cheers,

    I shot and compared with my Oly one side by side, no different, auto settings all read the same.

    If you wish to connect your weatherproof camera and weatherproof lens with a weatherproof adapter, then the MMF3 is the only one; otherwise, the other Oly and Panny adapters will deliver everything else and will be correctly aligned.

    I read differing experiences with 3rd party adapters, so will only caution that some have connection issues and others are misaligned. They're generally a lot cheaper, so perhaps not a big gamble.

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Yes Declan, first thing I did was test side by side in the same light with the same body. Using as many auto settings as possible, then comparing the readings they were exactly the same.
    I wanted to carry 2 bodies with wide and long 4/3 lenses, no problem now.
    Cheers,
