Hi, thank for the info. No I shoot with a Panny G1. I am still new to it. I used to have an E-300 followed by E-510 and Canon 5D. Now it is just the G1.StingOM, similar to that but without numbers on the dial. I did get it on ebay - about $30 from rainbowimaging. Don't quite get infinity focus though, which is a problem on most of these adapters. Do you have the NEX then ?
Ranger099, my order came from Amazon UK, I preordered at the end of October.
I did like the close distance shots btw. Perhaps "OK" sounds more understated than I meant. For me though I really wanted the lens for distance wildlife/nature outdoors (often in poor light) and I don't think it's really going to do that job - but it has potential to do well in other situations. I did have the 45-200 a while back, which I didn't get on with but this one is sharper I reckon.
The AF is just not performing for me, and this is what lets it down. Not merely slow, but with the *slightest* distraction it hunts-misses-hunts-misses-hunts-misses-occasionally hits, and that's hopeless for birds or any such similar. I'll be interested if the GH1/GH2 is any better.
