    Hello there! Anybody used a Contax G-series lens on a mft yet, I was wondering if the aperture is automatic? That is if I can set the aperture and meter without stopping down...

    Almost all adapted lenses (with the exception of some of the proprietary four thirds products) are completely dissociated electronically from our cameras, and only work in manual mode.

    It is not electronic. Focusing is through a wheel that is part of the adapted. I just got the Milich one that is subject of a thread on getdpi's forum and used a G90/2.8 Planar last Saturday and here are some images.

    What do you think of the Milich adapter Novaron? How does it focus? Could you possibly post a picture?

    Best regards,
