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

Welcome to this great community.
Acc to me Novoflex (Germany) may have the right quality adapters you need.

Enjoy your day.
