Does anyone know where one of these can be had? The only ones I see on eBay are for sale to Australia only.

Jeff Gandy at Cameraquest.com sells them, but they're not cheap! Here's the link:

Thanks, Greg. I remember seeing that site before. My guess is that Jeff doesn't sell alot of them. In my opinion, even if the quality is high, the price is exorbitant for what is a rather simple adapter. I did a better search of eBay and found some adapters for less than $50. I think I'll take a chance with one of them. I'll let everyone know what I think of the adapter once I've tried it.

p.s. Sorry for the redundant posts. Windoze strikes again...or should I say, Windoze goes on strike again.

Here is an Oly OM adaptor from Olympus. I wonder if it is better since it is manufactured by Oly themself.

And here is Olys website:

The Olympus adapter is better IF you are looking to mount Olympus OM-mount lenses. The adapter the original poster was looking for was to mount screw mount (M42) lenses to an E-series camera, and the Olympus adapter doesn't work for that.

I have bought 2 different ones on ebay, and they both are fine:

IMHO, the ones from ebay sellers skawina1 and cirrusgao both work fine, fitting snugly with no play.
