    Is there a good tutorial around about using Leica, Nikon and/or c mount lenses on the gh3 via adapters? What I can and can't do?

    This thread is a great place to start. If you have further questions after that, I'd suggest posting them in the Adapted Lenses sub-forum.

    You have two things you got to do with all manual lenses. 1. Aperture 2. Focusing

    Those two are the things what camera would normally be able to adjust. But since there is zero communication between manual lens and camera body you have to take care of them by your self. You have to take photo and video on M or A mode.

    As Vivalo says. All he hasn't said is how liberating this lack of auto can be. You'd be amazed at how much human beings can do - sometimes even better than a computer can :biggrin:
