Interested in this product, for use of Zuiko 21 & 24 mm lens on u43 and Fuji X mount, if available in these combinations.

I asked Venus Optics about Fuji and Micro Four Thirds but it seems they see this product as a priority for full frame cameras, sadly.

Strange, I would have said u43 and Fuji X would have provided the biggest market for this piece.

Ian Burley

It’s for full frame lenses so the cropping to Micro Four Thirds would definitely limit the wide angle scope.

Canon EF and Nikon AI mount versions are also in the pipeline.
