    An artificial flower found at a local restaurant:

    An almost withered flower at my sister-in-law's garden:

    Panasonic GF1 with jinfinance Nikon adapter (the one that supposedly works with G lenses).

    Hand held, around aperture f16. The depth of field is so shallow even at that aperture on the GF1. Using the LFV1 helped a lot with composition and stability.

    That last shot is a cracker.

    Depth of field will always be an issue and particularly hand-held as you sway back and forwards. Interesting to see that last 'around f/16' shot. I think you have done a great job.

    How difficult is it to change the aperture with the G lenses?

    Oh baby... This is my kind of topic!
    This lens is my favorite. It was my first true Nikkor lens bought, and has been used WAY more then any other lenses of mine.
    I'm sure most people will post macro pictures with it, but let me tell ya... it is CRACKIN' for street photography and portraits. At a 90mm range for DX sensors, it's just about perfect. Here's some of the range of shots I could find:

    And for some basic macro stuff:

    Those were just the first ones I could find online to show you guys, but let me tell you... if I were to go back in time and do-over all my camera purchases, I STILL would have bought that lens first. It's perfect for me.

    Peter, I haven't tried the adapter with a G lens yet.

    I totally agree, Jamus! On a DX sensor I think this lens is more flexible than the 50mm as you can use it as a close focusing lens AND a moderate telephoto, perfect for portraits! Quite difficult to take candids on an m43 though.

    Yeah, I have yet to get a M34 adapter even! I got my GF1 simply for portability and a great go-to cam.

    But you can't beat that 60mm... That thing is a true Nikkor.

    I just got an adaptor (ebay cheap version) to try out my Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G on my E-PM2:

    redflower.

    Artificial red rose-ish flower that came from a toy flower crown; it happened to be handy when I open the parcel. Aperture was at maximum and a flash was used. Processed from raw with OV3. Not a good photo, but it proved the adaptor worked!
