    SUPER basic GF3 question

    Where do I change the settings to allow the GF3 to shoot with other lenses? It doesn´t show up on the Custom Menu for me. Do I have to have a micro 4/3 on the camera for this option to show up?
    This is what I see on the custom menu:

    IA Custom
    Histogram OFF
    Guideline OFF
    Power Zoom lens (greyed out)
    Remaining Disp. (there´s a picture of a camera and some screens on its´right)
    Touch settings (there is nothing on its´right)

    Got it...it only appears if the camera is set to manual mode.

    I'm surprised. All of my Panny m4/3 have the "shoot w/o lens" option in the custom menu appearing all the time. Its either "on" or "off". You keep it "on" all the time and never have to touch it again after setting it the first time. It should be available regardless of mode. On my G1, GF1 and G3 it is either the last or next to last item in the custom menu and available in any mode. I'm surprised that they would have changed the menu on the GF3 so much that its only available in manual. In fact most people shoot with manual focus legacy lenses in aperture mode.
