    The right price for a helluva fun lens

    0 5/5 Baroquebloke - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 25mm f/1.4 C Mount CCTV Lens for Sony NEX-3 NEX-5 C-NEX & Canon, Nikon, Olympus EP-1, E-P2, E-PL1, Panasonic G, GH, GF C-M4/3 (Electronics) I bought this lens and an adapter for my Nikon V1 as I was having trouble finding motivation to get out and shoot having just relocated. I desperately wanted to get the 32 1.2 but have nowhere near the 800+ bucs to drop. So, after reading some interesting reviews I went for this tiny lens.And WOW. No, by modern lens standards, this lens is actually quite terrible. You can't really call it sharp. At all. but the results are fun and funky and can be very visually cool.I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone that likes to take artsy, funky shots. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 4, 2013

    Stuck on Canon Lens

    0 1/5 Rob P. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Canon EOS EF to Micro Four Thirds Cameras (Camera) As was mentioned by another customer, this product is not machined well and is currently stuck on my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens - which was the first lens I put it on out of the box. I'm thankful I didn't put it on one of my more expensive lenses. The little button that appears to release was just stuck in place and in trying to press it in harder to get the mount off, it literally just broke right-off. Other than literally sawing through and breaking off this mount, I don't see how I'm going to be able to remove it - which obviously concerns me because I don't want to break then lens. I'd highly recommend against this product as it is poorly manufactured and not up to status-quo standards of what a product like this should be. Fotodiox really needs to improve their QA department.I'm a professional photographer and use a lot of these adaptors for various cameras and lenses and this is literally the worst I've seen. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 17, 2012

    DON'T PANIC! The release button is just counter intuitive.

    0 4/5 Polar66720 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Canon EOS EF to Micro Four Thirds Cameras (Camera) This product my seem flawed at first... But believe me its not. The only fault it has is it doesn't come with instructions. The adapter does fit will and snug onto a Canon EF lens and into the Micro 4/3 mount. But you will not be able to get it off, IN A CONVENTIONAL WAY, of the Canon lens. On the adapter is a weird little silver peg that looks like one of the hats the band DEVO wears. It is a release button that is not to be PUSHED IN, PULLED OUT, or SLID FROM SIDE TO SIDE, i.e. the width of the adapter. Instead it releases by being PUSHED DOWN towards the small, micro 4/3, side. It might be stiff at first but you'll get it. Other than this little hiccup the thing works perfectly from taking my Canon EF lenses, as will as EF third party lenses, and mounting them onto my GH2. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 11, 2013

    It works well

    As noted by the other reviewers, the aperture of the EF lens in use cannot be changed when the lens is mounted on the micro 4/3 camera body, you also lose autofocus capability and the image stabilization function of the EF lenses. Those are the downsides to this adapter. The upside is the ability to use a wide range of Canon EF lenses on you Olympus or Panasonic micro 4/3 bodies. The best benefit here is the use of the long lenses and EF tele-zooms. You get an effective doubling of the focal length with no loss of lens speed. My 70-200/2.8 EF lens is now the equivalent of a 140-400mm zoom with the same maximum aperture of f/2.8 when used on my Lumix G1. In addition, the minimum focus distance of the lens remains the same. Not a bad compromise, in my opinion. Of course, you have to be aware that this doubling of focal length effect also doubles the likelihood of camera shake when handholding. Consider a tripod or use a higher ISO.I've only used this adapter a short... 4/5 A photographer (Planet Earth) - See all my reviews, September 25, 2010
