Canon legacy lens on Olympus Pen

YFGF's trusty (now seven-year-old) Olympus Pen E-PL1 gets a retro-upgrade.


17 July 2018.



▶ Adapting a full-frame Canon FD breech-mount 100mm ƒ/2.8 SSC coating (Super Spectra Coating) SLR lens —circa late 1970s— to a mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera.

☞ Adapter: Fotodiox Mount Adapter.

☞ Adapted like this the, focus and aperture must be manually controlled but the 'effective' focal length is doubled.

☞ The "Super Spectra Coating" designation was, of course, just wonderfully silly jargon for lens coating.

☞ Note the Dymo embossed tag identifying the original owner of the lens (circa late 1970s).
