    How to use lens adapter?

    I just bought an Olympus OM 50mm f1.4 and a fotodiox OM-m4/3 lens mount adapter. Mounted the lens on my GH1 and it keeps saying: "Check that the lens is attached correctly." Am I missing an obvious step or does it sound like my adapter isn't working?

    Got the adapter new on Amazon, btw.

    Thanks,

    You need to select 'shoot without lens' in your menu and all will be fine. You don't have to ever do it again nor change back.

    Excellent! Now, how, when I'm using the OM lens can I get it to pop up the 10x magnification for critical focus?

    I have a G1 and a GF1 so not absolutely positive of this but I think they implemented the same as the GF1 for later cameras. If so then a press in on the little dial and it will bring you to 7x and turn it again to bring you to 10x. It probably still works like the G1 also which is press left 4 way button and then middle okay button. Check your manual to be sure.
