    micro 4/3 to 4/3 adapter???

    How can I use my Lumix m4/3 lenses on a 4/3 camera? There are many adapters to go from a 4/3 to m4/3 system but not the other way around. Is anyone aware of such an adapter?

    You can't - at least in any meaningful way. The register of the micro 43 system is much less than regular 43, so that were you able to put a micro lens on regular 43, you would loose infinity focus -- the lens would be more like a close focussing macro one. I don't think that there is such an adaptor.

    No. The mount to sensor distance for MFT is approximately 20mm. The mount to sensor distance for FT is approximately 40mm. You would need to insert some optics between the two to compensate for that and no one has done that and the market for it would be limited.

    Not only that, but you would need to relay the electrics too as the lenses will only focus with the aid of a bit of juice. Both AF and MF require power from the camera.
