eBay is the cheapest. Just do a search and you'll find several hits, such as...

Hi Donna,

No you only need the one adapter. The one that Greg provided the link to will work fine. By the way, I've bought adapters from JinFinance and they make a good product.

I finally found a great deal on Craigs list and bought the G1 with the two lens kit (14-45mm and 45-200mm). I'm having a blas with the system. I bought the Pentax PK to m4/3 mount adapter on eBay for less than $40 since I already had some old Pentax manual focus lenses. It worked great. Now I'm about to buy the Canon FD adapter and some of those great (and cheap) Canon lenses. Now, this is really just for the fun of it as the Pana kit lenses are awesome. Next I have my heart set on the Pana 20mm 1.7. I've seen some amazing results with it. I'll be posting some pictures taken with the G1 soon. This technology is the future. Rumors are that Sony and Fuji will join the m4/3 crowed. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Lastly, the m4/3 is the system that works with just about every lens ever made by any manufatory (all in MF mode of course).

Congratulations, Tullio-

That is great to hear that you got the G-1 and are having a ball with it. Yes, Sony, Fuji, and perhaps Nikon and Kodak (who would have guessed!) are rumored to be ready to enter the m4/3 market right near the time of the PMA show.

That could even produce the first fixed lens m4/3 camera! Have a great day.
