Problem using adapted lens

I have a Panny GF1 and the 14-140 lens and love it. I am, however, having a problem using my old Nikon Al lens with it. I have a Nikon adapter which I bought from eBay and I'm able to focus and fool around with exposure but when I try pressing on the shutter button, I keep getting this message "Please check that lens is attached correctly."
Has anyone experienced this? How do I go about using my old lens?
Thanks a million.

Fantastic! Thanks for the info! I'm assuming that when switching back to m4/3 lens the "shoot without lens" will have to be turned back to OFF?

I thought legacy lenses could only be used in A, S or M modes and not P. Anyways, I'll have to fool around with this now that I know what I'm supposed to do.

You can leave SHOOT W/O LENS on all the time. It has no effect on m4/3 lenses.

You can only use A or M with legacy lenses. The camera cannot set the aperture on the lens, which is necessary with S or P.

I shoot in P and S all the time with my legacy lenses on my GH1. Perhaps it's different on the GF-1. On the GH1 you need to make sure you enable SHOOT W/O LENS in each mode separately.

With my Olympus OM-D there is no setting to shoot without a lens, it just does. No only that but it will shoot in every mode, you just have to remember to focus and set the aperture manually.

It is turning out to be a very versatile camera with great images. :smile:
