    My favorite gorge trail is now closed for the winter so I have to walk along the gorge rim and upper slopes. Two G1 shots from today's walk.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Jono, Good idea to start this thread. Sorry I'm late for the party. My MacBookPro is giving me problems.
    Scho, Nice detail. It looks like it is cold!
    Brain, Beautiful landscapes.

    I"m still stuck on flowers. I just can't get on with the kit lens because of the need to use Silkypix. Hopefully, I'll have my computer under control soon and will have an alternative installed. These were with the G1 and 50 macro (which I love on the G1...nice balance.)

    I will now be in one place for a couple of weeks so I hope to add to this thread soon.

    Cindy, if you have CS4 you can open up the files with camera raw. That's what Guy and I used with no problem.

    Terry, I'm still using CS3. I haven't been too enthused about the upgrade, but I guess I better do it as soon as I get my Mac back on track. We will all be looking forward to more photos from your G1. I enjoyed your shoot with Guy.

    Cindy, Beautiful macro shots and nice bokeh with that 50. Manual focus?

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Thanks, everyone. This 50 f/2 macro is a winner on the G1 (with adapter). Yes, it is manual focus.

    Beautiful flower shots Cindy, and thanks for the compliment

    The Panasonic G1 should be sold body only / with adapter - it's a fabulous solution for legacy lens users.

    I tried it with the 50mm Leica R last weekend - what a beautiful lens, much much nicer to focus manually than fly-by-wire - but the 50mm f2 macro is an unbelievable lens.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    Brian, Did you have a R to M4/3 adapter or did you stack adapters? (I guess there is no downside to stacking adapters, is there?) It is so exciting-- the possibilities that the G1 opens for us. The Leica R 50 f/2 and f/1.4 are both wonderful lenses. I used to adapt both on my Canons, but I no longer have either. I do have the Leica M 50 f/1.4 pre-ASPH sitting here waiting for its turn on the G1.

    Terry, They are lovely. Number 4 is my favorite. I love the boats, the yellow building and the red of the bridge.
    Isn't it fun to have a new camera in a new city??? I hope you post more from SF.

    Thanks Cindy,
    I will be posting more from SF and the surrounding area. Today I was out buying dishes, duvets and all sorts of stuff for this apartment. Exhausting!

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    I have one more shot from yesterday. I didn't do a good job capturing what I wanted. However, I as so taken by what I saw I decided to share. I was down by the base of the bridge just past Chrissie Field and there is a HUGE thick chain that keeps you from just falling off the ledge. The chain is constantly wet from the sea spray. The cracking pattern makes it look like tree bark. I've never seen something rust in this way.

    Aaaaggh, I am having serious G1 envy!! Very nice pictures, everyone!

    Love the Betty Boop dress art, Cindy. Would love to have been there to see all of the art, looks interesting.

    Terry, I'm with Cindy, especially like #4 from your set , and the chain shot is really nifty, amazing what salt water can do to a big hunk of iron, isn't it?

    More G1 shots, Pretty Please!
    Regards,
    Joan

    Interesting forehead.

    Hi Cindy,
    I was playing with the Oly 50 macro today in the store. Decided to hold out and see what happens with my 50 lux and 75 cron when the adapters are ready before committing to the 50 macro.

    Terry, I am also going to hold off any more purchases until I try my Leica lenses on the G1. However, I do think that the 50 macro is going to be hard to beat. It just balances so nice on the G1.

    It balanced fine. Their sample had a very loose focus ring. He took out a fresh one and it felt a little more "under control" but nothing like the feel of my CV or Leicas and not as good as the kit lens for manual focus.

    Based on Vivek's posts, I bought a Leitz extention tube at KEH today and I can then closer focus my 50 lux or 75 cron. I also have a number of 52mm close up lenses so I will first see how they do on the 45-200 and then decide what to do for the G1.

    Quick shot with the 45-200 OIS on the G1. Not as sharp as the Oly 50-200 SWD, but much easier to handle and shoot handheld.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Fabulous shots all, love the postcards from San Francisco, and the squirrel shot looks fine - that 45-200mm lens is lovely and compact, and of course stabilised!

    I'm still going to stick with my 135mm f2.5 for the long stuff...

    It's been awful weather the last week or so here, and no time to get out, but I so want to get on with some serious G1 + ZD lens tests!

    I'll be back with images, promise!

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    Beautiful desert scene Cindy. I'm longing for a clear blue sky like that. We are still digging out from the latest snow storm and temp is now -12 C. Next storm arrives tomorrow

    Carl, It is nice to be out of the snow and to have sunshine. I do envy you having the LTM to G1 adapter. I can't wait till I get my adapter. Keep the G1 shots coming.

    Shot today after a Blizzard last night on Cape Cod. And, yes, it's in color.

    Enjoy.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    SCHO, nice rodent! The 45-200mm really sings a lot better than I'd heard. And, like you, I was also hammered by the blizzard. But you really should go out. The G1 is hardier than you think!

    Cindy, lovely cacti (or is it cactus). A nice break from the icicles and slush I faced today.

    Here are two more from today. Enjoy.

    Hi Peter, Nice shots from the cape - one of my favorite places to be, but not during a blizzard I'll probably get out with the G1 for awhile tomorrow before the next clipper arrives.

    A comparison of the CV 28mm f/1.9 Ultron on the G1 and M8.
    http://www.pbase.com/image/107308478
    These were not adjusted for the difference in crop factors of the two sensors. Just a quick look.

    Carl, that's a scary comparison!

    Probably worth seeing some more - hard to believe how well the G1 is doing

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Wow Carl....

    I was planning to wait and see how I did with the CV and Leica lenses on my G1 one but I'm getting convinced that I now will have the perfect travel kit (where photography is the purpose). For other travel, I would cut back on a few lenses.
    1 M8 and CV12, 21 Elmarit, 28 Cron, 50 Lux, 75 Cron
    1 G1 with the two Panny Lenses and the 20mm f1.7

    This gives me a backup body that can use some of the same lenses and coverage from 16-100 on the M8 and from 24 (with the 12) to 400mm on the G1. Fast at 40, 42, 56, 100 and 150 on the G1. Seems like a very versatile kit to me.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    I am loving throwing the M8 w/2 lenses and G1 w/2 lenses into a bag and it is not heavy or bulky. Once the M adapter arrives, I might be able to just let go of my Oly E3 and lenses. I can even put the G1 in my purse in a pinch. The G1 is a DSLR replacement in a rangefinder size body.

    Cindy, My G1 resides in my purse...except if I'm taking a really small one.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    I had to go way back in time to find this thread.

    Anyone here still shooting with a Pana G1? I remember being amazed at how good this little camera was/is....it convinced me to invest in a m4/3rd system (which now includes the G1, GH-2, OMD and several lenses).

    Here's a shot I took a couple years ago with a Nikon 300mm f4.5 AIS EDIF lens mounted on my G1.

    Nope, never used a G1. I prefer the more modern stuff. Just bought my second GH1, like new (2,000 clicks) in box for $300

    Although I would love to have the OM-D and the GH3, I'm concentrating on the lenses first. My 2 GH1s and the GH2 work just fine and will hopefully do so for years to come.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Yes I still have my G1 and recharged it the other day. Sadly I sold most of my lenses when I bought the M9. My favorites were (in no particular order) the 20/1.7, 45 ME, the 7-14/4, and the 14-45 kit lens which I still have.

    While I'm looking thru "old" G1 images, figure I might as well share a few of my favorites.

    Re: Fun Pictures with the G1

    Oh, heck. I only recently succumbed to the insanely low price of a G3 body upgrade.

    The (still) quite wonderful G1 With 45mm Macro:



    With kit lens, 60-second exposure:



    These days I usually leave the Olympus 35mm Macro (with adapter) on the G1, and I take this combo on exercise walks or in foul weather (with a plastic bag). I like the perspective of the 70mm equivalent, and having the close-focus when needed. And the 35mm is very sharp from corner to corner.



    Best regards,
    John.
