    Micro 4/3 users : Canon lenses

    A company called Redrock has just released a converter that allows micro 4/3 camera users to make Canon EF lenses fit their gear. Giving Micro 4/3 users a huge range of lenses to choose from. Unlike most cross platform convertors, the Redrock range allow communication between the Canon EF lenses and the Micro 4/3 camera body.

    Kayell Australia have them in stock now

    Oh goodie!

    Now I can mount my 100-400L on my Pen camera!

    Seriously though, it seems a tad expensive and complex IMHO.
    It would really make things messy having to carry a 9V battery around with a cable going into the converter, and it doesn't say if the AF wil also work or not (and probably not), and for the price of the converter, you could buy a Canon 600D body to use with your lenses.

    It also doesn't say if it works with Canon EF-S lenses, just EF lenses.

    I wonder how many they will sell.
    Guess it depends on how many 4/3 users there are that are just itching to use their Canon lenses on the 4/3 camera.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
