(audio) Rode Micon connector for a D-SLR?

Hi, all.
I got a Rode Micon 2 adapter for my Rode Pinmic, and the adapter is too fat for my camera (Lumix GH1):

Pin Mic:

Is there a different Micon adapter I'm supposed to be using, or a different adapter altogether? I looked through all 8 Micons, and only 3 appear to have the right shaped heads... but Micon 1 & 2 are the same 1/8" 3.5mm heads I have, and Micon 8 says it's for Sony UWP receivers. (doesn't say the measurements)

Quick version of my question:
Mic plug too fat. What's the smaller one called?

According to the specs, the input is a φ2.5 mm stereo mini jack, NOT a 3.5 mm.

Ah, thanks.
$1 adapters on Amazon. I wish the Micons weren't $20.

Does anyone know of a cheap Micon equivalent? Something that accepts the tiny screw-on head you see at the end of the wire here:
