    Hello Group!

    I purchased a Viltrox EF to Micro 4/3 mount to adapt my Sigma 18-35mm and Canon 70-200mm lenses to my GH5. The Viltrox is electronic but there is no glass so I does communicate with the camera to adjust Fstop, but the issue is the adapter is now loose and there is a lot of wiggle between the camera's mount and the adapter, in addition there is some wiggle between the adapter and the lens. It got worse when I adapted the Canon lens as it is Heavy!

    First question, any ideas on how to tighten that up if possible. The second question is I'd like to purchase a manual (inexpensive) EF to Micro 4/3 adapter and if anyone would suggest one that is a tighter fit between the adapter and the camera but not too spendy. The Viltrox was around $100.

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    -Tony

    $100 you should expect more.

    A bit of thin tape on the offending areas may help

    The 80-200 is margin of needing support with many cameras.
