Cosina Announces micro4/3rds Adapter for F Mount Lenses

In a clever move designed to capture the photographer market seeking the ultimate carry-around camera, Cosina (makers of the Voightlander rangefinder) announced a Voightlander lens adapter that will let manual focus Pentax K and Nikon F lenses mount on MicroFour-Thirds cameras.

The compatibility notes only officially name Voightlander AIS and Carl Zeiss ZF lenses, but given the mechanics of the F mount, it is not inconcievable that the majority of Nikkor AIS lenses would also work with this adapter.

This adapter is obviously aimed at photographers seeking a better compact camera solution with larger sensors; such as Panasonic's G1 and GH1 and Olympus' reborn EP-1 Pen digital.

The full list and details are currently available on the Cosina site, but only in Japanese at time of publication. The list price is JPY19800 or just a shade over USD212 at market rates.
