    I'm a big fan of yours.
    I've never seen so much quality content and variety - now you are doing black and white!
    Please keep it coming (how many lenses do you own? )

    Maybe you have answered all this stuff before, but I am a relative newcomer.

    Thank you very much.
    I'm just a rookie!

    NN, might more than 50 lenses
    I do not calculate before.
    3 major groups: non-Leica M mount; SLR ; movie lenses

    I'm trying lumix 7-14mm today. HaHa!

    Thanks Vivek. This lens does produce some nice, soft colors wide open. The crop just reflects my yearning for a good camera with a 1:1 sensor that doesn't cost 5 figures

    Re: My DMC-G1 with manual focus lenses

    Great shots from all these different lenses (some clearly better than others). My question is, is there some sort of adapter system that will provide the conversion from all these different brand mounts to m4/3 simply by adding/removing rings (or something like that) or one must have a gazillion adapters, one for each mount type?

    There are numerous adapters to 4/3 format. One can use these along with a 4/3 to m4/3 adapter. JinFinance also does this with their Nikon/OM/Pentax adapters, too. There is a common base adapter, with different intermediate adapters. However, other legacy lenses (such as Canon FD) need their own adapter.

    Another example -- one can purchase a Leica thread mount (LTM) to m/43 adapter, or a LTM to Leica M adapter, and a Leica M to m4/3 adapter. The former route is cheaper and less complicated if one has only LTM lenses. The latter route is more flexible if one has both LTM and Leica-M lenses.

    Whether or not a base+intermediate adapter system is viable, will depend on register distance and special coupling requirements.
    Best regards,
    John.

    Thanks for all the info., John. The bottom line is, I will have to purchase multiple adapters if I want to use different brands/mounts on my G1. Oh well!

    Re: My DMC-G1 with manual focus lenses

    which is why some of us focus on 1 or 2 lens types

    however you can get 4/3 adaptors much more cheaply (well the gap seems to be closing) than micro4/3 adaptors. If you get a 4/3 to micro 4/3 and mount the others it will be cheaper

    it might be less accurate for infinity focus and with 3 joining surfaces rather than 3 it will also be less "rigid"

    I'm not sure about that. The 4/3 to m4/3 adapter costs $180. I paid $37 for my Pentax K to m4/3 and I am watching a Canon FD to m4/3 on my eBay being sold for $39. I can get 3-5 adapters for the price of the 4/3-m4/3 alone.

    Re: My DMC-G1 with manual focus lenses

    I actually have a question regarding the G1 OIS system. Do I have to switch the image stabilization mode to OFF when shooting with those manual lenses? If so, whay? I'd think not since the G1 does not have an in-body IS system. I'm curious.

    Rather than on the body, an OIS switch is on each lens that has this feature (14-45, 14-140, 45-200, 45 macro). The 20mm and 7-14 zoom do not have OIS, so there is nothing to turn off. Likewise with legacy manual lenses.

    I guess you are quoting the price of an electronic mount one ... since you would be intending to use it with legacy lenses that would be unrequired. as I assumed this was the case (as you had been discussing that) I discussed what I did.

    jinfinance sells (or did sell) kits for under US$100 which came with that and your choice of 2 micro4/3 to XX adaptors ...

    I am often left wondering in this day and age with so much online why people are not able to do a quick google about on this sort of topic and seem to harbour ideas such as this and others like:
    *you can't mount this on micro 4/3
    * micro 4/3 has a smaller sensor
    ...

    Ahh... Well, I haven't touched that option since I made a choice on "day 1" many months ago (and it wasn't the OFF choice). And I shoot with manual lenses all the time. So, no, you don't have to turn that off. In the same vein, you need to set the camera to "shoot without lens" to use legacy glass, but you don't have to change that back for native lenses.

    That's good to know as I set mine while waiting for an adapter
    for my FD lenses. Well, a 45-200 will get here before the adapter
    it seems and you have saved me from turning off the "shoot
    without lens" setting.

    Thanks, John. I know that much as I've been shooting with my Pentax 50mm. I also noticed that the IS menu option is grey'ed out when a manual lens is mounted on the camera. So, I don't really need to worry about it.

    I need some advice on a macro lens. I'm looking into getting the Canon 50mm 3.5 macro. I prefer those 90mm macro lenses but I just got a Pentax 135mm and I'm having a hard time focusing due to the long FL (too much camera shake) and obtaining blur-free images (also due to camera shake). I know I should be using a tripod due to the lack of IS but I find it intrusive some times. Thus, I'm leaning toward the 50mm 3.5 macro (or perhaps a 28-55mm or even a 35-70mm macro). What do you guys think would be the best choice here? Thanks a bunch!

    Check out the other threads on macro options in this forum. You'll find a lot of very good advice.

    Zoom lenses may bill themselves as having macro capabilities, but they don't usually focus all that close. And a dedicated macro lens will outperform the zoom without question.

    The Canon FD 50mm is well regarded. Bear in mind that this lens will do 1:2, but needs an extension tube in order to focus to 1:1. The tube isn't terribly expensive, however.

    50mm options are generally lighter than the 90mm lenses, and easier to use handheld. The working distance with a 50mm lens is closer, but I don't find it too restricting.
    Best regards,
    John.

    I do not know the Canon you mention. A very good shorter macro lens that is available at reasonable price (less than $100) is the 50mm/3.5 Micro Nikkor. It can be an older version (AIS, AI or pre-AI) as they differ only in the way of transmitting the aperture information to the Nikon bodies, and this is irrelevant with a m4/3 camera

    I know I should be using a tripod
    For good results with macro work this seems the most essential rule, more important than the best lens

    Cheers
