Is there such thing? I have a strange m42 lens that needs to be near the mount. Sort of like c mount to mft converter.

Is this it? I'm bit confused because it says it for OM4/3 and not general m43. I have a Panasonic m43.

Here, what I use in such cases: Click here to see on Ebay

Also very useful to mount M42 helicoids to mft cameras.

Maybe you lean about four thirds and then micro four thirds cameras first to see how they differe??

wiki is your friend... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Thirds_system

Thanks! The important thing to learn is that they're not the same. So that OM mount is wrong.

Basically, Four Thirds is an open DSLR system created by Olympus to standardize camera/lens production. It's a dead system and NOT the same as Micro Four Thirds system.

MFT is another open standard created by Olympus and Panasonic. Digicam without mirror, thus mirrorless.
