    Before anybody has a stroke about the title:

    I've been waiting on my m42 adapter for just under 3 weeks now.

    Discuss.

    Its terrible watching the gymnastics especially. that "chung Fei" girl (I think thats her) fell, totally screwed up and yet she still got ahead of the American who didnt fall and had almost no errors. That girl is probably 11 years old. The judging goes 100% China, total advantage.

    I feel the same way, even though last night I found out that you can't have a judge from the same country as the participants, and the commentators said that sucks because the judges don't have good programs in their countries and don't know as much as other countries.

    yeah I heard the same thing. BUT, with the chinese fans screaming and rooting there when there people do something the judges, who themselves have little experience dont know what to do and give China a good score. They should have certified judges who train or something. Its either the judges dont know what to do or China is getting the advantage, or both!

    thx for getting another thread of mine closed.
    what?

    Reg, was that a reputable seller? I assume was eBay. I never had a problem receiving goods from China except a LTM to BM Leica adapter, which I had to wait for about three weeks. I didn't worry though, and it came. I guess their customs are deliberately slow.

    Have faith, it will come.

    People, don't hijack other posters' threads. If you want to discuss fairness or un-fairness at the Olympics, create your own discussion.

    Be nice, please!...

    I am curious about that adapter. Is it to mount M42 lenses on a 4/3 Olympus? If so, will you keep the infinity focus? Also, do you have focus confirmation on the camera with any adapter?
