    Hi everyone.

    Wonder if anyone can help? I currently use a D200 c/w 16 -85mm. I also have a Voigtlander 20mm color skopar.

    I'm seriously thinking of ditching the Nikon kit and getting a GH1. My plan would be to use the voigtlander with suitable adaptor on the GH1.

    Will using this lens (or any other voigtlander lens) create any metering problems in either the stills or movie modes?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi melv, welcome to mu-43!

    The Voigtlander 20mm Color Skopar SL II will not cause any metering problems on any :43: camera, and from the samples I have seen, it looks to be a very good performer on :43: bodies.

    I'm not aware of any Voigtlander lenses that would cause a problem with :43: cameras. The one thing to watch out for is that some deeply set wide angle lenses could extend too far into the camera and cause damage.
