GF1 with Ernst Leitz Wetzlar - Hector 135mm f/4.5 with Leica Thread Extension Tube -- ISO 100 -- f/4.5 -- 1/100 -- 135mm
From the serial numbers it appears that the 90mm is from 1954 and the 135 from 1960. Still producing some quality shots.
I also have an old Leica 50/2 and 35mm screw mounts that I will be picking up pretty soon. Both of them are small and fit the GF1 quite nicely, much more suitable for street shooting . . . . .
I have also used the Voigtlander 25mm, M-mount, and 50mm, screw mount, as well as the Zeiss 25mm ZM lens when walking around the city. They all work well with the small body of the GF1.
. . . . . it may never replace a Leica M . . . . . but it appears to work for a lot of people as a primary or secondary camera for a fraction of the cost!
