Would it work? There's a particular lens I want to use that's only available for Lumix cameras: H-FT012E

My suspicion is that the back focus will fall short of the Canon's sensor. Anybody here know?

I'm aware the image wouldn't fill the Canon's sensor, but it'll still be HD, and I need to get (at least) one close-up for a narrative 3D project we're otherwise shooting SxS. Yes, I know, there's better ways of shooting 3D, but this project has some very particular requirements I'm NDA'd on. Sorry. :(

And anyone got any ideas on where I might be able to hire the lens in the UK? Buying it for one shot is crazy!

Cheers! ;)

The flange depths are just too different. You'd have to mount the micro4/3 lens inside the Canon body to get focus. I don't think it will fit through the whole and the mirror would be in the way if it did. Best to get a micro four third camera or just use 2 Canons and make your own 3-D.
I don't live anywhere near the U.K. so no clue on the last part.
