    Sorry if this has been covered before but can I leave my GF1 on this setting or do I only select it when using an adapted lens?

    It doesn't hurt anything whatsoever to have this setting enabled. I do all the time. It's just a setting so that beginners who incorrectly mount lenses won't be able to shoot and wonder why their photos are all messed up.

    And yes, it's been covered before. As recently as this month:

    Every time I try to shoot without a lens I get NOTHING . . . I mean, NOTHING! And it makes me nervous to leave the sensor exposed like that.
