Adding to the prior post: the Zhongyi Lens Turbo II EOS to m43 fits without problems.

But more problematic news: Viltrox EF-M2 does not work at all with the E-M10 III if you intend to use electronic EF lenses. WIthout a lens or with a lens, the camera shows just a black screen in the LCD or EVF, and does not take pictures. It is a firmware problem - if you cover the adapter contacts with tape, it works (of course without communication).

Search the web and found that it is a known issue, Viltrox is aware, but no solution until now.

(the adapter / lens worked perfectly in my GX85).

But right after this I've checked the Viltrox site (looking for older firmware to try a downgrade) and saw that they released the v3.2 of the Ef-M2 firmware last week - which solve this exactly problem. Now it works perfectly with the E-M10 III (tried with the EF 100-300mm 4.5-5.6, which is not in the compatibility list).

Ahh you must be new, hell you are, welcome aboard.  Great way to start off. Super good info. Now we are Really informed. My day is complete. But since I am such a nice guy I'll send you one of the extra Arri Alexa's I got for mentioning them. Heck maybe I will send you the Gimbal I said I will BUY. No freebee on that cheap ass thing. I only get 50 thousand dollar stuff free. Guess the cheap stuff is not a big enough write off for them. ☹️

I lurk. My post was in jest, but I'll take the credit for amply informing you.

 

P.S. The Ari Alexa has not arrived yet.
