    So my adapter came today I stuck a Minolta Rokkor-X 50mm 2 on my G3.
    Manual focus will take some getting use to. Not had to do much of that for the last 30 yrs. Fixed focal length plus manual focus will force me to go back to my roots. I started with this same model lens on a Minolta SRT 101 body when I was in high school. Have not downloaded images yet but so far like what I am seeing on the display. Hope to post some shots tonight.

    Here are a couple of my favorite. Only editing is resize, sharpen and convert to Jpg.
    DMC-G3    ---    0mm    f/1.0    1/60s    ISO 800

    DMC-G3    ---    0mm    f/1.0    1/500s    ISO 200

    DMC-G3    ---    0mm    f/1.0    1/4000s    ISO 160

    DMC-G3    ---    0mm    f/1.0    1/250s    ISO 200

    all images can be seen at
