Hello guys, I just found this excellent forum and thought I'd share what I did today. I got an E-PL1 a couple of weeks ago and it's the first good camera I've used. I'm still getting the hang of it, so please excuse my ignorance. (These were taken with a borrowed Nikon compact. Finally done with that! ... but how do I take photos of all my cool dSLR gear? Seems like I need a second PEN body already. ) I found this lens on an old Pentax SLR and ordered an M42 adapter. Got it in the mail today. The adapter is made by Kiwifotos and feels pretty solid. I read the sticky thread about adapters and found out it's because the adapter has been made short. This is a bit annoying but I understand it's better for the manufacturer to make it a bit short and have it focus beyond infinity, rather than make it too long and being unable to focus to infinity at all. I inserted a piece of regular A4 printer paper, which should be around 0.1 mm thick, between the adapter and the lens. It's ever so slightly thicker than what I need. I'm going to try making a few rings out of aluminum foil, which should be around 0.02 mm each. I'm guessing four of them should do it. Other suggestions also welcome. A couple quick shots I took earlier, my manual focusing skills need work. stopped down a bit, I like it f1.4, I think I missed the focus there, the center area is quite soft I have the IS set to 50 mm focal length. Having read about equivalent focal lengths on mFT, should I change this to 100 mm? Also, this might be a bit stupid, but how far should my target be when testing for infinity focus? Should I shoot with the lens wide open, or stop it down a bit?
