    Hi all,
    New to the forum. Having a blast looking at everyone's images shot with their M4/3 gear and adapted lenses. Some of you guys are beyond spectacular and I feel humbled by your talents. I have a Panasonic G5 and a few pieces adapted glass. I'll take some shots of them individually on the G5 and post on the thread of adapted lenses on cameras. In the meantime here are a few group shots and a group of those stupid things that often come attached to them.....:biggrin:

    I'll be most interested in how you plan on adapting the taking lens on the Rolleiflex TLR to a Micro 4/3 body.

    The Rolleiflex is an object of my envy, although I would like to handle that Leicaflex.

    ...anodized T6061 aluminum, and injection-molded polymer.
    Nice collection.

    Nice collection there - you will have fun trying some of those.

    Nice Rollei, looks like 3.5 tessar?? great cameras and I used to use the 2.8f Planar when working as a PJ (it was great for aerial work).

    Well I tried the hammer and chisel approach but the damn lenses won't budge. Getting the sawsall out and giving that a go. Actually the camera was given to me by my father in law 35 years ago before he died along with the Leicaflex. At least I can use the 50mm Leitz Summicron lens again.

    Thanks. Obviously it is way overkill. The problem is when I see a lens going for $5 what's a man supposed to do, leave it? Most of the lenses have been purchased for under $20, many well below. Happy hunting.
