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.

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. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) stopped down a bit, I like it Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) 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?
