    Mr Roseman very kindly sent me his 45mm Rokkor and I've finally got my adaptor. First excursion with it proudly stuck on the front of my GF1. Works like a trojan, Smooth, clean and crisp. It's my first adapted lens that's why I'm pretty excited.

    Pictures all with the GF1 and 45mm Rokkor.

    Thankyou very much Allan, I love it.

    My goat leaves your goat in the dust...

    I put a new cylinder head on this engine and here I am setting the valve clearances.

    your goat is quite handsome....the chap in photo 2 is almost as handsome. Looks like you're getting on well with your "new" lens.

    Nice Brady!

    Hi Brady,

    I'm so glad you like it! Really. Nice to see it getting some use after many years asleep.

    If you enjoy that Rokkor, which is the "platic like" of them, you'd love a nice MD 50mm. They are all metal, smooth as glass, and a little faster.

    Nice set !

    ps. Is that your goat?

    It's a pleasure to use and it sounds as if the 50mm is a good one too. I'll keep my eyes open for one of them.

    In my morning tea break I'm out with it taking pictures of flowers:)

    Nah it's not my goat. Dad owns it but he wants to get rid of it. We can't even give it away!
