Help, m43 Lens Turbo doesn't fit on OM-D E-M5 (but attaches fine to G6)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a Zhongyi Lens Turbo that fits fine on my Panasonic G6, but I recently noticed that it doesn't attach to my neglected Olympus OM-D E-M5.

 

It will sit flush in the mount, but then you can't turn it at all to lock it in place, not even a fraction of a mm. 

 

I think i've probably had the Lens Turbo a little too long to return now. It didn't occur to me to test it on the E-M5, as I've been shooting so much with the G6, and it worked fine on that.

 

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this either with a Lens Turbo, or with other adaptors or lenses?

 

Should I try to force it? File something down?? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

OK nevermind. Looked at it again, and it isn't quite flush in the mount, there was a hair's breadth gap on one side. Pushed it in, and then I was able to twist it. Very stiff and grindy though, and worried that I wouldn't be able to take it off. It seems to be getting a little easier after taking it on and off a couple of times. Am I in danger of damaging the mount on the camera do you think?

      Hi,
      5 months ago our company bought Zhiyun crane plus gimbal.
      While we edited our footage we discovered that there is a problem in gimbal stabilisation. Though the gimbal was 100%balanced in all positions, it still appeared stabilization problem to every single shot.

      This a video sample with the Crane plus and a Sony A7III.
      I tried to sent email to the company but none of the emails in their site works and in the tech support on Facebook the answer was that everything is ok.

      Panasonic GH5
      $1550 shipped

      Purchased last year. Used on a short film and some home video. Great condition.

      Comes with
      4 batteries,
      charger,
      strap,
      Freetril 128gb V60 card
      Lexar 128gb 1000x
      ( both cards can do 4k 400mbps and 4k 60p)


      Sigma 18-35mm Nikon Mount
      $610 shipped 

      Great condition, purchased used on ebay. No imperfections in the glass. The auto focus piece was removed to do a manual aperture mod. Never got around to doing the mod, but never put the auto focus board back in as I never use auto focus on the sigma. Comes with a Lens Turbo II Nikon to m43 speedbooster, also in great condition. This allows adjustment of the aperture.


      Olympus 17mm 1.8
      $285 shipped

      Purchased used but was in flawless condition and still is. Nice fast little auto focus lens.

      Olympus 45mm 1.8

      Just bought this little guy, perfect condition.



      email me for the quickest response you can try calling my home phone but I am not around a lot.

      I am open to offers but the prices are pretty solid. If you are in the Detroit area I am open to meeting in person and exchanging.

      Open to trades for a Fuji Xt2 or XH1. Also would be open to Fuji lenses. If you want the entire bundle I could give you a deal.

      Hi
      Long time lurker first time post.  "upgraded" to the a7iii so I have to part with my beloved Olympus gear.  Everything is in great condition, the only small blemish is on the bottom of the E-M1 where a tripod plate left a little mark.  Otherwise everything has been treated just as well as I treat my infant daughter.

      Hey, all. We have our rokinon cine set for sale that is no longer needed. Comes with a pelican case and assorted tiffen filters. 
      Lenses are virtually unused and was bought for  a limited project. Would be perfect for any m43 camera especially the gh5.
      Located in San Diego, California. But can ship at buyers expense (will be pricey for case)







      Price is $2000 flat for the whole bundle, good deal considering everything is literally brand new.
