The Viltrox adaptor I recently received seems to work good. The lens fit pretty snug but you can rotate the adaptor on the camera body (after it locks) about 1/16 or less up and back. I haven't taken any other pics with it yet other than the one I posted earlier. Been too busy doing yard work over the holiday weekend.

It was the rotation of the adapter that was just enough (a bit more than 1/16 as I remember) on my camera body to cause it not to work. Not sure if it was caused by some contacts on the adapter being slightly off the mark or if it was a looser mount on my refurbished body combined with the heavy 70-300mm. The Panasonic has more substantial metal tabs on the mounting plate that seem to cure this problem for me. It's too bad the Viltrox didn't go this route as I could have saved $27 ... but oh well, all's well that ends well

Well we'll see if I have problems down the road with the Viltrox.
