    Hi there

    I'm new to photography but wanted to experiment a little.

    I've bought the above lens and it clicks on very nice on the camera and I can see through the lens and focus and change the aperture.

    But when I press the 'shoot button' i get an error message that no lens is attached - help...I've tried in different shooting modes.

    Obviously I'm doing something wrong, but what?

    Yes, you need to go into the custom menu and enable "shoot without lens." This is turned off by default.

    Thx a lot I would never have figured that out on my own.

    Just took the first pic :smile:

    Hope to show some god pics in here.



    Now that I've set up the mode, I guess I should make like a special mode for shooting with this lens?

    I've got the AIS version of this lens and really like it with my GH2. Sure you'll enjoy it.

    Hi Dko

    Can I ask you which settings you use for this lens? In terms of ISO and WB?
