    An impressive adaptation. It is scary, though. Even for an OF that does own most of the equipment he talks about. I did notice that early in the demo KK advises to always keep the body pointed down and then doesn't do it. He does keep it from pointing up, though. Fortunately, I don't have need to do quick changes. As clutzy as my aging hands are becoming, it's a good thing. Yes, Martha, a very good thing.

    If anyone is into 4/3 you can get two extension tubes for £10 on ebay and glue them back to back ..better if you got a lathe/mill but easily doable without ..post to me if you in UK

    Glue joints, especially on non-porous materials like metal, are subject to sudden failure. Would be better if you can use some form of fastener

    Epoxy has an excellent tensile strength, it's only shear that isn't so good. So long as it is properly cleaned and keyed, all should be good.
    Always learning.

    Clarification required. That’s not me in the video! Just something I found. But I do the technique with my small primes and zooms. DX ya know ;-)

    Yes spray so true..I did drill some holes in each part so the poxy can go through and make a "rivet". The Nikon version is threaded together only the 4/3 was poxy .
    Sorry Knock Knock but you did go to the effort to find it ...I was surprised a LR member would post something out of focus..ha ha
