    Let's see some photographs made using lenses adapted for use with Micro Four Thirds cameras!

    Nice shot Atto, thanks...

    My favourite adapted lens is the Hexanon 57mm f1.2.

    This is an image taken on the E-3 in live view mode, I'm looking forward to trying the E-P2 with this lens.

    That is a beautiful image with the Konica 57/1.2. I've got the 57/1.4 and 28/2, use both with the FT-1.

    Just made a short trip to China.

    I used GH1 + Dallmeyer SS 3" / Minolta MD 75-150mm f4/
    Kinoptik 50mm f2 to take these mages.

    Wow! That Hexanon lens looks great!
    I just received my e-p1 couple days ago and haven't had a chance to take it outdoors but, here is one of my pics.

    Sure. I see that you uploaded your photo to an album here at mu-43. One easy way is the following: View your photo in the album. Underneath it, you will see a box under "BB Code". Copy the entire contents of that box including the parts, and paste it into your forum post where you want the full size image to appear.

    There are other methods by which to do the same thing. I described them and linked to a demo video [URL="http://mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=311"]here[/URL].

    Not a problem. There are a few nice things about using the attachment method which you used instead of showing the full-sized image in the thread. First, it gives a dark background for the photo, which sometimes works better than the light background of the forum. Second, it eliminates other distracting forum elements from view. Third, it presents just one photo at a time while allowing you to easily browse to the next if there are multiple images attached.

    I tend to use attachments for certain images/threads and the full size embed for others. It's good to have options!

    I like the way the attachments look, but I've noticed that on one computer I use, the dark area covers only the top half of the browser window, with the top half of the image cut off. If I try to scroll to see the top half, the overlay and attachment disappear!

    This happens using a Mac with Safari, but my other Mac with Safari doesn't exhibit the same behavior. Not sure anything can be done; just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else is seeing odd attachment behavior.

    Update: Just after posting this, I found the cause: I had used the command-minus key combination to reduce the size of the type, so I could see more posts per page. Apparently the overlay doesn't scale properly when this has been done. If I use command-plus to get the type back to the original size, THEN click the attachment, it displays without cropping and the overlay extends all the way down the window as it should.

    That reminds me of a fourth advantage to using attachments. They automatically display at a size which will fit the display (with the exception that you just brought up).

    The adapted lens I use most is the 50mm f/1.5 CV Nokton. It's very sharp, and its reasonably compact size makes it a good match for the G1. This lens plus the 20/1.7 Panasonic fit nicely in a small belt bag and make a good documentary-shooting outfit for me (although eventually I'd love to see a µ4/3-native autofocus lens of similar size and specs.)

    More pictures from our last-ever Nutcracker production, all with the Nokton (I've also posted some with the 20/1.7 in that thread):

    Stagehands typically don't seem the sentimental type.
    But what you can't see here is that after the performance was over,
    they all insisted on a group photo of themselves with the cast.

    Carrie and Sarah had been dancing since they were children,
    and both finally had achieved their dream of becoming professionals.
    Next year, they'll need to find something else to do.

    I couldn't decide which of the "leopards" I preferred in focus...
    so I did one each way.

    Sad but proud, she watched the entire ballet from the wings.

    Ditto for all of what you said above. One of mine with the Nokton 50/1.5 and GH1:
