Hi everyone, my first post here! Great to see there is a home for those interested in using their Leica lenses on the new u4/3 system.
After all I have read about the different adapters available I am still unsure about their features, some information are even conflicting.
What matters to me for choosing which one to buy:
(1) Can the adapter be left on the camera when changing between M lenses, thus effectively turning the G1 into an M bayonet camera?
(2) Dimensions/clearances: I understand that whether certain lenses can be accommodated may depend on the geometry of the adapter. Are some adapters more flexible ("accommodating") than others?
(3) Infinity focus. John Milich advertises his adapter with "Lenses will focus to infinity". Is there an issue with other adapters?
(4) General build quality
(5) Colour. Though secondary, I would like to know what color finish they have. Black preferred.
I would be most grateful if those who own the adapters could post their experiences here. Many thanks in advance, hopefully it would be of help to others as well!
