    I just bought an Olympus OM zuiko F/1.8 lens off ebay and was wondering what the best quality adapter would be to fit it to my X-E1? Anyone know?

    I think the best quality adapters in general are Novoflex and Rayqual, but they're quite pricey (around $200 for the Novoflex and $180 for the Rayqual) for what they are (essentially a metal spacer tube with mounts on either side), especially for a lens that you probably paid less than $50 for. I've used Fotodiox OM adapters and EF adapters on my m43 cameras for several years now and have no complaints whatsoever. They run around $25 and the OM to X-mount adapter can be found here http://www.amazon.com/Fotodiox-FX-O...&qid=1360952755&sr=8-1&keywords=om+to+x+mount

    + 1 with the Fotodiox!

    I have it for m43 and the x-mount and never caused any issues!
