    Just joined up. I got a GX7 and 14-42II last week.
    Long time canon shooter and wanted a setup good for travel when i didnt want to take all the bigger gear.
    So far been really enjoying the GX7 still learning the menu system and all the little features built in. But I am impressed. I am surprised that this little sensor ISO 6400 can equal and even slightly edge out the ISO6400 on my 7D Mark II

    I have been contemplating getting an adapter to use my canon glass but all the manual ones I see none of a aperture control and i am not paying the price they want for a metabones. I feel they are grossly overpriced.
    I am mainly only going to be getting the 25mm 1.7, 42.5 1.7, and the 100-300 and thats probably it. since I want to keep it small and light

    Kipon make a manual adapter with aperture, and also an AF adapter cheaper than the metabones one. Kipon: Lens Adapters, Mounts & Tubes | eBay I've no experience with either, so suggest you do your own research before committing.

    I saw a video of the Kipon in another thread. looked pretty good. but I think I am gonna just buy the lenses for the body instead of adapting my canon stuff. Reason I got the GX7 was for small and portable. if I am trying to use my Sigma 150-600 there goes that LOL
