    Default Adapter to use a 4/3 lens on a C Mount?

    I have an older Olympus E-620 with a pair of lenses. I've recently wanted to try using them on a C Mount but after looking around haven't been able to turn up anything (lots of m4/3, but no full size 4/3). Has anyone ever heard of such a thing or know of any options? Thanks much in advance!

    I think the register distance prevents the use of those lenses. Micro four thirds is different.
    E-1
    E-5
    EP-3
    EPL-1
    EM-5
    Pen F
    M8.2
    M9-P
    M 240
    Dlux 109
    M-6
    Enuff lenses to supply the world.

    You may still be able to find a M42 to OM 43rds mount adapter on Ebay. Then purchase a M42 to C-mount adapter and screw it inside. The registration distance for C-mount is 17.5mm, for CS-mount is 12.5mm. So only expect macro with the four thirds camera.
