    It is quite interesting, do you have photo taking by this lens?

    Which must be the most handsome lens I've seen. The finishing touch is provided by the screw heads. Delightful!

    This fast long lens is actually quite good, but large and heavy.

    110 lenses on GF1. The 70 performs really well, the zoom less so. Zoom converted first to Leica M mount, then adapted via M-m4/3...that tiny 110 mount just doesn't feel adequate for the big zoom.

    Seeing all these lovely old lenses attached to MFT bodies has made me think that I may just fit one inside an old full plate field camera, throw over the black cloth and get an assistant to fire off some powder at a "Wild West" location shoot that's coming up...:cool:

    That looks wonderful Kai,

    now which company will give us a similarly fast native m4/3rds prime?

    And could it be even more compact? or does that lens imaging circle match m4/3rds perfectly?

    Cheers

    I can honestly say that I have never before seen such a mix of non "same brand" lenses used on any format before - you see the third party lens manufacturers glass used on DSLR's, but the mix of different glass used on micro 4/3rds is amazing.

    It is a clear challenge to the third party glass makers to look at some good quality glass in micro 4/3rds fitting..........come on, what are you waiting for - more and faster primes for me please.

    It really is "liberating" - and a "sea change" in cam manufacturers attitudes in letting this happen

    It's an internet thing..........and I wish that Pentax had joined them

    BUT I reckon we have to thank the CHINESE who really do "come up trumps" when they see an opportunity - they are churning out great quality adapters at reasonable price

    Dead right Bill, god knows what they would cost if made in the UK, just getting the adapter blackodised here would be more than the cost of most adapters. :wink:

    Oh!


    Thanks for that.
    Here is a sample image. In reality, it is too long and bulky to be of use.

    Ray, not Oz
    This is my Pentax 50mm f2 from my old Pentax MX. I'm actualy surprised at how well it performs, after one removes the Marumi filter that I'd bought when I got the camera some 30 years ago. I'm currently using a Pentax to 4/3s adapter and the 4/3s to m4/3s adapter, but I've ordered a pentax to m4/3s adapter to save the stuffing around.

    I've also got a Sigma 35-70mm Pentax fit zoom, but this just confirms my view of Sigma lenses ie, not good. But then that may be unfair, as zooms of the era weren't really renowned for their quality.

    I'm also waiting for a Minolta to m4/3s adapter, so that I can try out my Minolta 50mm f1.4 from my SRT303.


    Cheers

    I'm a big fan of adapting Nikkor glass to the G1.
    I find them to go together well, and they are not overexpensive @ evilbay.

    Here's the one that takes the most space in the lenscabinet so far :
    Zoom-Nikkor 50-300/4.5 (not the ED version :frown:)
