The G3's diminutive size works well with the smallish and beautifully built Taukmar 135mm. I can still manage handheld blur free images with this combo and good light.

The venerable Nikkor 105mm f/2.5. And is a real pleasure on the G85!

A couple of 35-70mm lenses. They are compact, light weight and produce great pics. And of course they look just as good on a u4/3 body as they did on the old SLR body.

The 200mm Super Takumar. Classic superb build quality. A bit heavy, but usable in good light with IBIS. Good sharpness and contrast. Perfect focus damping for this size and weight lens which makes the overall shooting experience enjoyable.

A newly acquired Nikkor Q 200mm f/4 lens. Great ebay buy. I've tried it once on my g85. The lens paired to the g85 is a easy handling setup. This lens is not as heavy in the hand as I thought it might be. Also is the ever
popular Nikkor 50mm f1.8. There is nothing more I can add to the qualifications of this adapted lens. It simply is fast, sharp, nice bokeh, good contrast. And of course both look great mounted to the g85 and the Samsung Nx30 mirror less cameras.

A recent oddball acquisition, a SOM Berthiot Pan Cinor 20mm-60mm f/2.8 Zoom Lens for 16mm movie cameras. The Paris manufacturer introduced the model in 1953 and originally came mounted with a coupled viewfinder and zoom and focus shifters. Unfortunately, and despite its huge size, it has a strong vignette, though not so bad at the 20mm focal length, and not bad at all in video mode.

Canon FD 300 F/2.8L on the G2 which is long gone and now used on the E-M1, E-M1 II



View attachment 774014

Canon FD 800 F/5.6L on the E-M10



View attachment 774015

Canon FL-F 500 F.5,6 Fluorite on the G2. Best built lens I've ever seen.



View attachment 774017

Canon FD 500 F/4.5L. Used 90% of the time. Beautiful balance, wonderful internal focus, smooth and easy to use. Sharp as a tack. If I could have only one lens, that's it.

It's what happens when a Sigma decides to eat your camera.

All the best folks and a theme going on there for sure.

amazing pics and lenses, which converter do you use and does the AF perform well, especially on the 300 F2.8 and the sigma 500 F/4.5 APO

My Nikkor-H 300mm f/4.5 (integrated hood extended) mounted on a GX80 using a K&F adapter. The lens is a beautiful piece of optomechanics.

I finally decided to get another Canon FD lens, so this 100mm f2.8 arrived today. I'm heading off now to try it with a focal reducer on another recent acquisition: the relatively-ugly but oh-so-practical GX8.

Here's my E-M10 Mark II with an adapted projector lens 16KP-1.2/50mm, using a 17-31mm M42 helicoid and a slim M42-micro43 adapter.

Neat, what kind of effect does it give?
For portraits it gives a nice bookeh. For other kind of photos, like macros, although this lens is not appropriate, I just love the painterly look it gives:

Pen F from 2017, lens from 1937. Amazing. And the 1937 lens gives pretty good results.
