    Robert, The 50mm 1.2 balances quite nicely on the G1 - not a huge lens like the 25mm Summilux. Here is a top view shot with the lens mounted via the Rayqual FD-MFT adapter. The latter is anodized aluminum and very light weight.

    Regards,
    Carl

    Are you using a long enough hood on it?
    Vivek, I don't have a hood for this lens yet, but I will need one for sure. There is some CA, but not too bad and I didn't correct for it in the raw conversions (LR 2.2).

    Since the Canon Lens Converter B was mentioned here in this thread, I thought I'd mention that this adapter doesn't allow you to change the aperture... you're shooting wide-open all the time. No idea why Canon would design such a thing for their own lenses but there you go. Might be a good footnote to add to the adapter chart under LTM+FD.

    The Converter B with work with FL or FD lenses, but with FD, the aperture lever on the back of the lens must be secured in the stopped down position.

    Not required with FL lenses...
