If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses,the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on thefilm/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinctadvantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and yousave the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range ofadapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters.Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: largeformat to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3)provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image fieldhelps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration byusing the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens imagecircle.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standardprecision. The leaf spring design in the adaptor holds the lenstight to the camera body ensuring there is no play between thecamera and the lens. The all metal design and polished surface isdesigned to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences.This adapter also has a built-in aperture control tab which allowsfor control over the lens iris. This adapter allows Deckel-Bayonett(DKL) Lenses to fit on a Micro Four Thirds (Micro-4/3, MFT) MountMirrorless DSLR Camera Body (such as Panasonic Lumix, Olympus Pen,OM-D).
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm,auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctlywhile using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode"will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have theability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You canshoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinityfocusing is guaranteed.
Note: The aperture markings on the adapter arebased on a 50mm f/1.9 lens; when used with any other lens theaperture markings will be off (will not represent the true apertureused), however you will still have full range over the lensiris.
