    Use Sony Nex lens on Micro 4/3 ???

    I got a Jackar Snapshooter "toy" lens by accident in the Sony Nex mount. I wanted to use it on a OMD EM5 micro four thirds camera. I can not for the life of me find an adapter. Are the physics wrong or something?
    Thank for any help!

    Flange focal distance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Sony E-mount 18 mm
    Micro Four Thirds System 19.25 mm

    So, you certainly couldn't fcous to infinity.
    With best regards, K-H.

    I would not have thought that the smaller micro 4/3 had a longer flange focal length.
    Wow.

    Thank you very much!!
