yeah I know it is strange. I really wanted the Viltrox to work but for me it just was too loose on the mft mount side. Maybe it was my e-pl2 that was loose, IDK. But it didn't work and I sent it back.

My Viltrox is not loose on my EPL-2. Maybe you got a defective unit.

I have ordered one on E-Bay for my Epl-1 (also purchased on E-Bay). Can't wait to try it out.
