Hey everyone I'm buying a GH3 in the next few days I shoot normally with my canon t2i and I dont want to switch lense systems and buy a bunch of MFT mount lenses. The adapter im looking at getting has aperture blades but is this really needed? as well how much of a hassel is it to set the aperture on the canon body then tranfer the lense over? I will strictly be shooting just video with this as well. The main reason I am wondering is because with the GH3 already setting me back quite a bit i'm wondering if I should splurge and buy a $100 fotodiox adaptor w/ aperature or just go with one without it for around $20

Hi Wes – congratulations on the new GH3! The smartest camera decision I ever made was to switch from a Canon T2i to the GH cameras.
Yes, you really need an adapter with aperture control for your EF lenses. Carrying a second body around is a real hassle.
But you don't have to spend the extra money for the Fotodiox.
A $32 DSLRKIT EF to MFT adapter with built-in aperture control will do the same job without busting your budget.
Hope this is helpful!

I ended up going with the fotodiox one as im up in Canada and couldnt find the other that shipped to Canada. Thanks for the reply though! 🙂
