If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: large format to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3) provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. It’s all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. It allows Canon EOS Lenses to fit on a micro 4/3 (MFT) system camera body. This Adapter can be combined with any of the Fotodiox Pro line of EOS Adapters to allow virtually any lens to fit the Micro 4/3 system!
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode micro 4/3 body. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.
Compatible Cameras (Including, but not limited to): Olympus PEN E-PL1, E-PL1s, E-PL2, E-PL3, E-P2, E-P3, E-M, OM-D, E-M5, E-M10, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, G2, G3, G10, GX1, GH1, GH2, GF1, GF2, GF3, GF5, GH4, Panasonic AG-AF100 Mirrorless Digital Cameras, Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC)

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.
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.
I've only used this adapter a short time so I can't judge long-term function, however, it seems to work well with the EF lenses I've tried on it: 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 70/200/2.8, 400/5.6 and 100-300/4.5-5.6. I've not tried the trick of stopping down the lenses on an EOS body and using it at an aperture other than maximum. That seems a little too involved to me although I can see how it would be a benefit under some circumstances--high speed lens in full sunlight, for example. Since I've not used it a lot and don't know how well it will hold up long-term, I'll only give it 4 stars.
If for no other reason than to experiment and have some fun, I would recommend this adapter.
Yes, yes...no Aperture control using the 4/3 body - you must set it to a certain F stop on your Canon Body and (while holding the 'depth of field preview' button) remove the lens.
(I shoot wide open most of the time anyway)
And, I'm sure you know, there will be no Auto Focus. That does suck, but it's to be expected.
In short, it's a want in my case not a need...but it sure is fun to be able to mix my current lens collection with my new GF1.
Build quality is above average, but is nothing to write home about. It works as advertised.
I was surprised when I unboxed it because I was expecting a plastic assembly at this price point. It's actually all metal; the whole piece is solid metal, including the bayonet rings! The fit and finish is well above what I thought it would be. The adapter fits both the GH2 and all of my Canon glass firm and snug, with no wiggle at all. It is tight to remove, but comes off easily with even pressure. The release pin pulls back towards the camera rather than pushing in, so this may be the cause of some of the problems other have reported. All in all, this Fotodiox adapter is very high quality and I don't see a need to buy a more expensive brand, unless you need manual iris control, in which case you'll be spending $400+.
