    Greetings to all:

    Just purchased a Panasonic G1, and trying to learn all the features. So far loving it! My first DSLR. This is also my first attempt at a Blog! I hope I am doing things right as I attempt to find my way around. I hope that this Site will help me enjoy the new camera to the fullest and also understand what is required to use other lenses. I have been a Contax man for 30 years and now have a these Zeiss T-Star lenses that I would like to still use ( at least some of them) and I'll sell the rest. So I need info on reasonable quality adapters etc and where to get them. Used to have my own darkroom for B&W and for colour for 20 years. Other hobbies are Ham Radio, learning to play the piano and volunteering at a Wild animal Rehab Centre.

    I am long retired and reside on Vancouver Island in Canada with my Wife, cats and dogs.

    Regards
    Grandpagord
