    [sold] Lumix DMC-L1 Body - Mint Shape - PICS Added!

    Hi folks

    I have for sale a mint DMC-L1 body. I will get some quality pics up here soon (but it's what you see in any Google search). These actually seem to be going up in price on ebay and everywhere else. I have the box and everything it came with - cables, caps, etc. I'd like $250 shipped for the kit via PayPal. I have feedback on this forum and extensive feedback on PayPal.

    This is my second L1 body (and I'm keeping the other one). A fantastic feature to the L1 kit is the ability to use Konica film lenses without adapters on the L1 body. These look amazing and look fabulous photos (all manual of course). All it takes is a little work on the lens. Several people do this for a small fee on the internet (I do these myself, but I'm happy to set you up with a person who does it). I purchased a Konica 40mm (pancake) and a 57mm and modified them..Better quality photos than any $1000 Canon or Nikon I'm seeing.

    Here's a pic of the L1 body with the 40mm (as you can see, no adapter and a very clean look):

    Frankly, this is the camera that Panasonic should be building. And it looks gorgeous with that modified Konica on it. The results speak for themselves. If I didn't already have at least one too many cameras, I'd snap this up in a heartbeat. Good luck with the sale.

    A really cool camera... Shoot, I wish I hadn't already spent too much on other toys the last few months. BTW, that last pic looks like it was taken in Basel if I am not mistaken... You live or lived there? I moved away years ago but am still back to visit pretty often.

    Ha, the last pic was taken in Basel. Good catch! I was there for a friend's wedding. Beautiful spot, lots of great people..and, of course, chocolate :)

    Yeah, I think the L1 is amazing. I like this forum so I always try to make a sale here before the dreaded ebay.

    I assume that even when you aren't using an adapter the same crop factor (2x) still applies? Also, how difficult is the modification for Konica lenses & will they also mount to any other M43 camera afterwards?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "crop" factor. I have little experience with adapters with m4/3s setups, which is why I prefer this rig.

    The modification is not hard. This will answer your Qs: Belerion Books

    You are effectively making a Konica lens a Lumix/Olympus 4/3 lens. SO, yes you can use an adapter to make it mount to m4/3s setups. It would be the Lumix/Olympus 4/3 -> m4/3 adapter.

    Very tempting. And, thanks for sharing the info on the Konica lens mod - sounds easy enough. I like the looks of the L1, I wonder if it's too similar to my L10?

    I responded via PM. The L1 is distinct from the L10 in its shutter dial, flash, and metallic body.
