Product Description

Product Description

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)

This is a great product and is exactly as advertised. It is well made and very high quality. Beware that it does not support all EOS functions as it does not allow for interoperability between the EOS auto functions and CSC cameras. But if you can live with manual focussing and setup (just like they used to do in the old days), you'll be very satisfied. Take care when attaching lenses and locking into camera. The fit is VERY precise and to unlock, remember to press and pull the release button BACK towards the camera. Just pressing it will not do it. Recommended!

Have tried this adapter using a number of different canon lens and managed to get a satisfactory picture in each case. I found it easier to mount the lens on a tripod when using telephoto lenses but manage hand held shots using a macro lens. in each case the aperture was the widest for the lens and manual focusing was used. Understand the is a version of these adapters were you can adjust the aperture, but I have no experience of its use.

Essential if you have Canon glass that you want to be able to use. Works beautifully, and the lack of AF means that you have to hone your skills. Having said that, my Oly still manages to track faces using it!

HASH(0x8f452144) out of 5 stars Stuck on Canon Lens 17 Mar. 2012
By Rob P. - Published on
Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0x8fa17dc8) out of 5 stars DON'T PANIC! The release button is just counter intuitive. 11 Mar. 2013
By Polar66720 - Published on

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.

HASH(0x906b77c8) out of 5 stars It works well 25 Sept. 2010
By A photographer - Published on

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 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.

HASH(0x8f452570) out of 5 stars Well made, overpriced, yet worth every penny... 11 July 2010
By Topher - Published on
Verified Purchase
Do you have multiple Canon EF Lenses? How could you NOT buy this product? You paid too much NOT to be able to use them on your Micro 4/3rds body. Not to mention that other than the 20 f1.7 pancake, there really aren't many fast lenses available for micro 4/3. Now I can use my 50 f1.4, 100 f2.0, 135L f2.0, & 24-70L f2.8

Yes, 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.

HASH(0x8f452720) out of 5 stars Surprised by the quality 28 Feb. 2012
By Family Tree Photography - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a Canon-to-M43 adapter for my GH2, so I can use my Canon lenses. I was apprehensive, because a lot of the more expensive adapters had mixed reviews and even reports of the ring getting stuck on a lens. I thought for the price, I'd take a chance on the Fotodiox.

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+.
