    You are most welcome! And remember it really wasn't a weapon---it only shot film...no ammo. Bob

    2 examples of pix shot with the G1 and the M.Zuiko 14-42mm lens: by the way the subject is a Japanese Aeriel Machine Gun Camera circa WW2 made by Konishiroku (Konica). Bob

    I've been putting this off.....

    I have not posted here in a while. But as promised I did not give up. I have found a combination that works for me and although it is not how I thought I'd be using this camera, when I purchased it. It is now a very useable and enjoyable camera for me. It is still winter here (-15 degrees...

    I've been putting this off.....

    Wasabi Bob--The brightness problem will not ocurr everyday....just in some rare extremely bright cases. And the diopter adjustment helps with the eye level VF, just not enough for my eyes and glasses. That 500 DTL you had was a fine camera in its day. I have several of them and their brother...

    Warren T.--Thanks for understanding that I did not wish to offend anyone or upset anyone here. I think I hesitated to say anything as long as I did, because I did not want to cause a big hassle on this forum. This forum is made up of very good and helpful people and moderated by very nice folks...

    I've been putting this off.....

    Thanks to all you folks for all your suggestions. Some I find very helpful. I adjusted the diopter adjustment for the VF and it helped a little. Enough to compose a photo when using a native lens. But not enought to allow me with my glasses and all to accurately focus a legacy lens. Now on...

    I've been putting this off.....

    BrianK--your experience mirrors mine. It was just so darn bright out there and my eyes must have adjusted to such extreme brightness that anything on the LCD was barely visible. And if it is barely visible--then it is useless to me-- at that moment. squidbrand--you are correct! The...

    Danny Two--Maybe it is a combo of these 56 year old eyes and the super bright sun and the super bright reflective snow here in New Hampshire, USA today---but trust me, the viewfinder and the LCD monitor were both useless today--here with my eyes. Bob

    I've been putting this off.....

    but now I must come clean. OK...after owning my Panasonic Lumix G1 for about a month, I must tell you my true feelings. I am disappointed. But not with the quality of the product or how it does what it does. It is very well made and has superb build qulaity. I suppose I was naive...

    need help

    I just went back and put on a legacy lens with adaptor. Turned on the G1---got the note about checking the lens being attached properly. Went to the shoot without lens mode and said yes---result - all fine with legacy lens and adaptor. Then I removed the adaptor/legacy lens. Put the Micro...

    RE: G1 I have several adaptors for my legacy lens and have used only them. But I just received an M.Zuiko micro 4/3 14-42mm lens. I changed the setting to no shoot without a lens. And when I attached the lens I get the check that lens is attached properly note in the viewfinder. What else...

    Hand held Light Meters

    The use of a hand held light meter (depending on the subject) can be beneficial. It forces you to slow down the process a little, take a little time, perhaps put a little thought into the process and perhaps see things from different angles and allow you more time to compose. To me, it can...

    Mamiya Sekor E 50mm f1.7

    I know it has been a long while and no one answered this thread....but..... If there were an adaptor for that lens I would think it would be very good on an m4/3. Those lenses (Mamiya E and EF) and the Mamiya CS lenses as well are both very contrasty and sharp. As far as I know no one makes...

    Confusion

    OK....Great! now for the sake of accuracy--this is what David Busch said "Yet, your f/stop remains the same (that is, a 300mm f/4 becomes a very fast 600mm f/4 lens)." I did not want to mis-quote David. thanks

    Confusion

    Crop factor, field of view and now crop circles--LOL. You folks are great...I got a big smile from that!!! :biggrin: so, if I understand correctly the aperture does not change (for exposure purposes). but the effect of the aperture's depth of field does--that is where the f1.8 acts like an...

    Confusion

    I have read elsewhere on the internet and, I believe here at this forum too, that when using legacy lenses on let's say a G1--the f stop changes as viewed by the camera. Example a Hexanon 40mm F1.8 becomes (35mm terms) an 80mm F3.6. But I just read on page 183 on David Busch's book on the GF1...

    Pro's and Cons of an adapted Lens

    The main reason I finally jumped into digital, after being a true die hard film vintage slr guy is because the micro 4/3 works well with adaptors and many brands of legacy lenses. I have a ton of legacy glass of just about all mounts and brands and my G1 and reasonably priced adaptors allow me...

    Guess what I got for Christmas?

    Hello Bob checking in here.... My definition of vintage cameras--must be manual focus and use film......my SLR collection goes from 1962 (Spotmatic) to 1984 (Canon T70).

    Hello from the White Mountains

    Thanks Nic! Right now I put a Super Takumar 28mm f3.5 on my M42 adaptor and a Hexanon 40mm f1.8 on my Konica adaptor and a Rokkor 58mm f1.4 on my Minolta MC/MD adaptor. I think that gives me decent coverage from 56mm to 80mm to 116mm......on the micro 4/3 format. That will have to do...since...

    Great Falls - Paterson, NJ

    Very nice photos of the "Great Falls". I grew up in Haledon,NJ one town over from Paterson. Those falls provided the energy for a ton of Mills in the 1800's.... Paterson was known then as the Silk capital of the nation back then. Now like most inner cities...not too much pretty to see there...

    Many thanks Bill. I have only taken a few test images on my G1....once my wife gets her's on Christmas day....then we'll learn more. And then begin take more serious photos. I am in the habit of saving everything to my hard drive and to my external hard drive. So after that I will reformat...

    Hi Bill Thanks for taking the time to answer. I have a Lumix G1 (and so will my wife once we get to Christmas). I will look for it in the menu. I have not saved any photos to my hard drives yet...but once I do--I will find that icon in the menu. Sounds like once I find that, it's...
