    Photos with G1, adapter, Leica Lenses

    Some folks in Hong Kong pooled their resources and posted a number of shots with the G1, M-4/3 adapter, and various Leica lenses. A LUG member posted them for all to see.

    Each lens is identified in the photo captions.

    Thanks for posting these Peter! These threads are slowly eroding my resistance to getting the G1.

    Wow! I must be missing something. I thought these photos were pedestrian at best and demonstrated nothing I could use to evaluate the G1.

    On the other hand I have been following this thread (and some others) and I feel the G1 with a good adapter and M glass is a real contender. Just didn't think these images were representative as to what's possible.

    The threads as a whole yes; not sure those photos were designed or intended to be a statement on the G1, rather, just the aspect of using M lenses.

    That said there is a Japanese gentleman with some really nice photographs on flickr using G1 and Leica glass.

    I agree with Woody. I haven t seen a single image that looks really sharp and these are small images ? Am I missing something?

    If you are speaking of the set linked in the first posts, the shots taken with the M8 don't look any better.

    You are right ...I didn t notice that . So maybe they are just bad examples?
    Or do they look sharp to you?

    I think these snapsnots from HONG KONG are really bad examples. Even the kit lens on my G1 yields better images.

    Without meaning offense to those behind these shots, I don't think they were out to prove any sort of sharpness/quality/performance with these, they were just having some fun using M lenses on the G1.

    Exactly. A group of guys got together in a restaraunt. They brought some random M lenses and a G1. They shot some quick indoor snaps of each other, in fairly low light. Given that there are not too many pictures yet with the G1 and M lenses, I thought I'd let you all know that these existed.

    What we don't know is how much motion blur affected these photos, as opposed to the effects of the anti-aliasing filter or difficulty focusing.

    Nothing the diopter adjustment wouldn't help resolve.
    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.
