Anyone used a Kipon Canon to M 4/3 adapter?

I'm fixing to buy one this morning, but would love to hear from anyone who has used it. It costs more than the fotodiox, but appears to be well made. Any thoughts?

I ordered a fotodiox and it's coming from hong kong, a fact not made clear when I ordered it. The fotodiox seem to be out of stock domestically.

Re: Anyone used a Kipon Canon to M 4/3 adapter?

I ordered the Kipon, appears to be of highest quality. I don't see anyway around having an adapter on each lens. The Canon FD adapter I ordered was the last one they had. The retailer below said they cannot keep them in stock, and they are charging $50 or so more than ordering direct from Hong Kong. I have weddings coming up, so I coudn't wait. I'm waiting for the Polish one to become available, I want one of those also.

I have one, and paid more for it too, but needed it and couldn't find elsewhere. It works out pretty good, there is a little play in it. If you hold the lens by the barrel, no play when using the focus ring.

At the price I paid, I am very disappointed there is any play at all. If there is I might return it...there is a guy selling brass ones on ebay, he makes them sound like the best.

Any play is not ideal, I thought that kipon was the top mount for eos with iris?

I don't know, I know Phillip Bloom liked it, but he also had very limited options at the time he reviewed it, back in December I believe.
