    Just joined this morning, after a 'google' showed up this site in searching for P-K to M43 adaptors.

    I am the happy user of an EOS 1D Mk III and a bunch of lenses. The 1D Mk III was a 2nd hand purchase in Feb, as an upgrade from my 40D.

    I have owned a G3 with 14-42 kit lens about a week. I have some old P-K lenses (SMC 50mm f1.7, Viv Ser 1 70-200 f2.8 and Tamron SP 350 f8 mirror lens) that I look forward to using on the G3.

    I need a compact camera for use with some active hobbies, hence the purchase.

    This site is proving very useful already!

    Welcome to the best photo forum on this planet. You know Lenticularis ... this place is overflowing with Aussies. I presume and hope that your images are equal to your countrymen.

    Active hobbies


    hobbies : Gliding (sailplanes) and motorcycle road riding.

    My EOS 1 D Mk III is just too big and bulky for a glider cockpit and for easy/safe fitting inside a m/c tankbag. Having said that, I recently carried it, the 135 f2, 200 f2.8, 1.4 converter and charger in a topbox to the Australian motorcycle GP at Phillip Island last weekend.

    I have yet to start in earnest on trying out the G3, but I have a few first attempts in albums like this: https://picasaweb.google.com/115677867546915737067/G3EF135F2L?authuser=0&feat=directlink


    BTW, I visited Austin in the mid 80s on business once, very nice city!

    Gary - thanks for your welcome. I think that's a very dangerous presumption however!
