    uhhm... are you shooting aperture priority in all of these? what are the actual aperture and shutter settings on these? from which camera? at what focal length for the zoom?

    with a bit more info maybe we can speculate... I do know that some legacy lenses will cause different exposures, and you may simply be able to set exposure compensation up a notch or two when you shoot with that lens

    The LCD by default, always gives you a bright view so you can compose the image easily.

    What exposure mode are you using (program, aperture preferred, shutter preferred, etc.

    What is the actual shutter speed each image was taken at?

    OK, I had a look at the other parameters on your Flickr-- indeed, with Aperture priority exposure and both set at iso 400, your kit lens was going about 1/3 sec at f5.5 and this lens was at 1/30 sec at f3.5. 5.5 is about one and a half stops slower than f3.5. 1/30 is about 3 stops faster than 1/3 sec., so why not try to set exposure compensation to +1.5 or +1.7 when you shoot with that lens and see what happens. Probably better try with some better lighting (or tripod), though, since you don't have stabilisation in that legacy lens on a Panasonic body, so in similar light, it would be down to about 1/10 or 1/8 of a second and would likely show camera shake hand-held

    Canon FD mount lenses often have closed apertures by default.

    You need to make sure that the M4/3-FD adapter you are using is mounted properly on the Canon lens so that it opens the aperture when you rotate the aperture ring. It is difficult to mount an FD adapter correctly, so you may want to try it a few times to make sure it's locked.

    Try rotating the aperture ring while looking through the lens using just the lens + adapter (without the camera body). When it's at f3.5, the aperture should be open.

    35 to 105 gives you a range that goes from near telephoto (just narrower view angle than "normal") to medium telephoto. Assuming you get your exposure compensation set to get better performance, you might try it for portraits, street, "pieces" of landscape, maybe closeups... there is nothing saying what subject matter you must use. You are not buying film or paying for developing... so just go out there and SHOOT!

    try anything. that is the way to learn
