A customer in the video/motion picture industry who tried their luck with the cheaper alternatives comments: “We already have adaptors for all our Nikon lenses and they work, it’s just that the tolerances are no good resulting in the lenses rotating which is a problem when trying use a follow focus shooting video.” The issues were resolved after switching to the equivalent Rayqual products.

Rayqual M4/3 adapters on the Olympus E-P1

Rayqual Micro-Four-Thirds adapter on Olympus E-P1

A customer in Malaysia, who is obviously privileged enough to be given a private view of a final pre-production model of the forthcoming Olympus E-P1, sends us the above photo. In it you see a Carl Zeiss ZM Planar 50/2 mounted on the E-P1 by means of a Rayqual Leica M-M4/3 adapter for Leica M lenses.

He comments further:

The focusing is great because of the 3″ screen, plus you have the zoom function like the G1. In certain ways it is better than the G1…. the face detection works very well even with this manual lens. Without an EVF it is a bit odd and needs getting used to but it is a very solid camera though. Just imagine… an 100mm f2 ( 50mm x 2) image stabilized lens… this is mind blowing… the Rayqual really feels like a piece of precision engineering.

Looks like this will be an exciting year for M4/3.
