There are some sweet looking adapted lens-camera combos out there. Don't be shy. Show us yours!
I have probably posted this elsewhere but at least this is in context here...
The lens is a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 40mm f/1.9 circa 1954. It comes from a Robot Star IIa camera and adapter is from Hawks Factory via eBay. The big thing in the front is the folding hood which fits snugly on the lens when stored.

Vidar, that is a nice looking combination!
I do like that look too - very retro to me. Certainly from an aesthetically pleasing point of view it's a winner - and we know it makes good pictures, too.
Chalkdust, terrific lens collection you've got there! I'd love to see some photographs made with the 50 Sonnar in another thread.

Last but not least, a lens I've had some great shots from, the Olympus 50mm f1.8 Zuiko from my OM-1.
I got mail today!

(not a 58mm nocti - just it's lesser brother)
Good looking glass, have you any shots to show us please?
Only had the G1 - two days - or is it three
The adapter came yesterday

probably this weekend
Voigtländer Pentax K to m4/3 adapter + SMC lenses
Having moved from Pentax-land to Oly-land, I thought I should make use of all that old SMC glass I have kicking around...
Here is the Voigtländer Pentax K to m4/3 adapter
E-P1 with Pentax SMC 50mm f2 lens
E-P1 with Pentax SMC 300mm f4 lens (a bit front heavy, eh?)
That SMC 300mm is outrageous!

Comparing G1+ Summicorn 50/2 and Leica M3 + M-Rokkor 28/2.8:
So far, I have used only the RJ adapters.
What a hoot! My father sent me a 50mm f3.5 Heliar yesterday. Of course, I had to try it on the G1:
By the way, I think it would be a very bad idea to try to collapse this lens on this camera! It is fun to use (feels very old-timey). However, it is best to focus after choosing an aperture because turning the aperture ring can turn the lens and refocus it.
And a quick sample of its work:
Hi! your 50mm f3.5 Heliar cool looking too!
I really like this thread, hopefully I'm trying a late 50's Leica 5cm f2.8 M mount collapsible on my G1 today, (if the mount arrives)
is that the adapter for a M4/3 to use M mount lenses, (if so I have just bought one)
I came to digital late after a long rest from film cameras, but I have kept all my old Nikon, Canon, Pentax SLR stuff
I have a couple of adapters, (RJ camera):
M4/3 to Nikon F
M4/3 to Leica M - (arriving today)
Planning to buy, (but not just yet - need to see how it goes as I really want a wide, either Panny 17mm or a CV MF lens, which will consume £300 plus)
M4/3 to Canon FD
M4/3 to Pentax K
M4/3 to Pentax screw
