    That would be great for me

    I have one from RJ. The bayonet clamps failed on me, I am waiting for replacement parts.

    Assume any adapted lenses have to be used in MF mode. The only adapters currently capable of AF are the Panasonic and Olympus 4/3-to-m4/3 ones, and they only have AF capability with a select number of 4/3 Panasonic and Olympus lenses (lens compatibility chart).

    EDIT: Removed aperture comment. Aperture settings have nothing to do with AF/MF capability. Not sure why I mentioned that one. Glad monza listed the Rayqual adapter info addressing the aperture issue.

    There is an adapter from Rayqual for Sony lenses that don't have aperture rings.
