Just wanted to start a thread for the Panasonic G3.
Panasonic G3 w/Helios 44M 58mm F2 @F4.0 1/200
Wich adapter do you own ? I have an Helios 44M 58 too from a Zenit camera and I would like to try if I buy a GF3. And what do you think of the result (sharpness, bokeh) and the method to focus ?
Enjoying the lens I see...awesome
I have the RainbowImaging M42 Adapter, which works great and not expensive. This lens is wonderfully sharp and its weight helps me keep steady. Haven't tested the bokeh yet. I prefer an EVF when using MF lenses as focusing becomes more critical the longer the lens.

Thanks for the beautiful picture Simonz and the M42 Adapter info. No way to buy one outside US from RainbowImaging, Amazon or eBay. I'll watch for others adapters.
Great shot!! My wife has one of those plants. It's some sort of banana that isn't edible.
a dozen random shots for anyone interested in the untouched JPG output all shots with the 20/1.7 pancake, exif left intact. full-size shots uploaded [ame="http://www.megaupload.com/?d=U6BECZR0"]MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service[/ame]
had a bit of fun with #10 and silver efex pro
Wow thank you. This is perfect. I'm in the process of buying my first m43 so seeing some real life samples is great.
Hope to see more.
The more I see of the G3's high ISO output the more my whole Canon system is quaking in it's boots...

G3, 55mm Micro Nikkor, f/11, ISO 1250, Imagenomic Noiseware Pro 4,
So I finally bit the bullet and used the Black G3 I initially tried to sell (was hoping to get the brown one, but an unused gear just sitting there is too much to resist).
I took the kids to the playground this afternoon, and thought this is the perfect time to try the new gear. This is my first time to use a Panasonic body, so I'm still familiarizing myself with the controls, menus, features, the colors themselves, even the EVF and swivel LCD combo, etc. I also shot these images in JPG, and, not being very familiar with the Panasonic output, I thought choosing the "Natural" settings would be the safest bet. After viewing them in Lightroom, I thought punching up the colors seemed appropriate in this setting. Also, I used both the kit lens and the 20mm.
So, please, be gentle. :smile:

Here's my very amateurish tribute to The Red Shoe
Actually, I just wanted to try out Nik's selective coloring, and thought this was a good image to try it on.
Tried converting the JPG to B&W. Looks good at least to my eyes.
Just got my G3... looking forward to getting to know it well.
I think this is a sexy little camera!
