    How to fit Nikon-F-Lenses to the Lumix G1

    Dear friends of the MFT-technique,

    the discussion in this Forum I appriciate very much und I would like to share the experience here. As an owner of quite a row of Nikon-F-lenses from former professionell work I would like to get a hint, how to get an adaptor for this lenses to my G1. Novoflex told me (two days ago), that they deliver such an adaptor in May 09. Is there any other adaptor for those old Nikon-F-lenses already on the market?

    Hoping to reach the level of the pictures that a shown here, I add a recent shot with the G1 (Kit-Lens 14-45, Iso 250, F5, 1/100).

    With greetings from Berlin /Ger.

    Hi Ulrich,

    right now, you could purchase the Panasonic 4/3rds adapter, and add a Nikon to 4/3rds adapter - these are available very cheaply on ebay.

    Alternatively, it would probably be cheaper to wait a short while until there's a 3rd party direct Nikon to m4/3rds adapter.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    I use a Novoflex Nikon -> Leica M + Leica M -> MFT (Chinese or Novoflex) adapter, both available now. I posted a picture of lens with adapters here:

    Good News

    Sent the following request to Japan Exposures this morning:

    Can you please notify me when Rayqual have a Nikon F to M4/3 adaptor
    for purchase?

    Answer received this afternoon from Dirk Rösler:

    Sure, it is in production now so I hope it should be out soon. Please also keep an eye on our site, especially the Shop News section, in case I forget.

    Regards

    Dirk
