    Hullo, I've just registered here since I may be posting a bit : asking about converting lenses, finding adapters and suchlike.
    I got myself an e-bay Oly e-410 last year which really came to life when I stuck a cheap Cosinon 50mm/1.8 on it (from Hexham car-boot fair) and re-learned to manually focus. Brilliant.
    Now we got a spanking new Oly e-600 : very good thing! Huge bargain!
    ...and I'm getting a Panny G1 off e-bay in a week or so : for which I'll be wanting old lenses.
    That's the story so far.

    Hi Ulfric, and welcome to the forum!

    I had a split focusing screen fitted to my E-400 to work with Hexanon legacy lenses - but m4/3rds is a fantastic fit for working with classic legacy lenses. The G1 has an excellent grip for using with larger heavier lenses.

    Let us know when your G1 arrives!

    Cheers

    Brian

    In past history the good people in that area of the UK were "raped and pillaged" by the Vikings

    I'm saying no more

    Welcome!
    Micro 4/3 are great for manual focusing lenses.

    Regards,

    My G1 was delivered by the postman just as I was leaving on a job : I had time to get it out of the box, stick the lens on and that's it.
    When I got home I was immediately out in the garden taking boring photos of bits of wood with my e410, e600 and G1 : I must say of them all the G1 -just- edged it on detail resolution.
    Hey it focuses really really well!
    As for colours : with multi-film 'bracketing' of colour/contrast settings I'm impressed!
