Okay! Got the M-Adapter, and this lens has been asked about lately.

Looks good to me!

Thanks for posting these Brian. Did you use just an M to micro 4/3 adapter for the 40 C Summicron lens? If so can you let me know which one? I am considering buying both a 35 and 50 M Summicron from the 70's but the 40mm might just do the job in one lens!

I used this inexpensive adapter, bought off of Ebay.

Leica M mount len for Micro 4/3 Adapter E-P1 GF1 E-PL1 - eBay (item 270578369001 end time Jun-08-10 20:53:50 PDT)

$20, included shipping. I just received an F to 4/3rds adapter from the same seller, and am waiting on a C-Mount adapter. That will permit use of a Canon 50/0.95 TV lens and a Kowa 12.5mm F1.4 lens (designed for 1" Vidicon tubes).

Took under 3 weeks to receive.

I've been using an LTM adapter with it, and the Nikkor-SC 5cm F1.4 and Nikkor-PC 8.5cm f2 with it quite a bit lately. The latter is a heavy, all-brass and glass lens.

Very nice setup. The bokeh is a little crazy at f2 but shapes up quite nicely by f4. I just got an E-P2 today and I'm waiting on an M-mount adapter to arrive so I can test out a CV21/4 along with my usual Leica glass... Summicrons 50/2, 90/2 and Elmarit 135/2.8

omg... I can't believe I forgot to do that! Brian knows me better than I do.. LOL

I've got a drop-dead gorgeous Sonnar 50/1.5 in Contax RF mount.. with a C-to-M mount adapter.. and the M-to-M43, I'm good to go.

I'll be putting that combo to use asap.

What I love about RF lenses on the u4/3 cameras- the size. They are tiny compared to SLR lenses. The 5cm F1.4 Nikkor-S in LTM stays on the EP2 most of the time. The 40mm focal length gives a life-size view through the Electronic Viewfinder of the EP2- you can leave both eyes open.
