    Hi flyby, yes you can use Canon lenses with your m4/3rds camera - you'll just need a Canon to m4/3rds adapter.

    Here's an example.

    Cheers

    Brian, do you know whether aperture control is possible with Canon EOS lenses via adapter? I don't see any controls on that adapter, and the lenses don't have an aperture ring. I assume the adapter doesn't have any electronics, which makes me wonder if the lens can only be used wide open with that adapter.

    To increase mid-range contrast, yes? (As opposed to lower it.)

    Thank you very much. I know Unsharp mask, but vibrance is new to me. Looks interesting. It's not at all clear how it's different than Saturation, though.

    Unfortunately, it looks like aperture control is not possible for the Canon lenses.

    Cheers

    What a beautiful picture that captures her fascination with the fish.

    Ian,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I'm curious; are you using the square aspect ratio in camera, or are you cropping in post? I've never tried shoot 1:1 before, but I love your square images.

    Here is my little contribution. Gf1 with 20mm 1.7 wide open at 1.7, 1/40s at 100 iso.
    I love that lens and the out of focus zone. Got to get close until they make a 50mm.[​IMG]

    Love it! Both for the image - and its crystal clear quality.

    Square format

    Hi Steve,

    I used the square format in the camera rather than crop - this way makes me think more about my image at shoot time and compose for that format.

    It just adds that extra challenge which I love:cool:

    A real pleasure to see Brighton even with the wind and rain, we have been up here in Scotland for 13 years having moved away from Sussex (Chichester, then Haywards Heath). Thanks for sharing.

    Loving the last capture with the people about to get a soaking, that's why they went there in the first place no less!

    New Pics from Yosemite

    Just returned from Yosemite after spending a long weekend in the snow with my Panasonic GF1. On Jan 21, Yosemite experienced the worse snow storm in over a decade. I was fortunate enough to be there to snap this shot.

    Kool.

    The GF1 is a great travel camera. It just needs a short compact tele, similar to the pancake lens for Pentax, the 70mm 2.4, which is not much bigger than the Pana 20mm.
