Here are a couple of shots with the Nikkor 80-400mm lens on my G1.
does the lens based vr work indeppendent of a nikon body?
I'm not sure cosinaphile. I use a tripod and turn vr off.
On second thought, I think not as there is no electrical connection to the camera.
You are correct the VR is off as there is no connection
long shot but I was wondering if you've tried fourthirds ZD 70-300mm and if so how does it compare to the nikon lens.

Your G1 is on the Nikkor lol.
Well of course I didn't mean I had taken a picture of the Nikkor and the G1 with the G1. Only the bird and the moon.
No, I meant the G1 was mounted on the Nikkor, not the reverse.
Oh, I get it now.
et100 I don't have the ZD 70-300mm so I can't compare them.
I think the G1 (or any other mFT camera) and the 80-400 build a good team. I do not own that lens, but was able to use one of a friend for a few images. I was amazed about how well that worked.
Here is one example, the whole image and a 100% crop:
I did not use a tripod for this, since the G1 has no mirror shake a rest of the Nikkor on a rail was enough stabilization.
