Olympus camera mount

#1 Post by Antartica » Sat Mar 28, 2020 6:30 pm

Could anyone comment on this listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-EOS-Moun ... SwElpeLi-7

I know one option is to buy the om-mount Adapter L. Does anyone have any experience purchasing something like in the ebay listing? What would be the pros and cons of buying that adapter instead of the original?

If it will produce the same result, I think it could be a cheaper option, but I want to be sure it will work.

The original Olympus item is exactly the right size, and very well made.
... Anything else that matches those criteria will do the job equally well.

Essentially it’s just a spacer tube.
... Don’t forget that you will also need the relay lens [projection eyepiece]

Hello-I recently got photo-micro equipment from deal corner and was pretty happy with his stuff-but advice-go to his actual website dealcorner.com as his prices are quite cheaper than on his eBay shop-I saved quite a bit doing this-very fast shipping-address him as Boss-I suspect he likes it!
