    Panasonic Lumix S1R lens question

    I am very interested in the Panasonic Lumix S1R as a mirrorless solution. I am trying to see if any of my current lenses will work with an adaptor and if anyone has a recommendation on adaptors. I have Leica S lenses and Hasselblad HC lenses that I shoot on my Leica S with the adaptor which works flawlessly.
    Thank you in advance,
    Greg

    Lenses that arenít native L-mount will likely only work in manual focus only for now. Perhaps there will be a TAP adapter made in time but Iím not aware of one yet.

    According to our friend Vieri, the S lenses work with AF on the SL with the Leica adapter. I don't know if that is the case with the Panasonic cameras, but I wouldn't be surprised, since Panasonic was involved in the development of the SL:

    HC lenses with two adapters? You probably won't know until you (or somebody else) have tried.

    Vieri is a member of this forum, so you can cintact him with a PM.

    Thank you! For my primary purpose manual focus would work. This camera has my attention because of the multi-shot high resolution mode for use in architectural photography.

    Thank you Jorgen! Honestly I agree, the Hasselblad HC lenses with 2 adaptors seems unlikely. Thank you for the information and mentioning Vieri!

    In the Leica forum it is written that S-lenses with adapter work on the s1r, but without AF. I hope this can be improved via future firmware updates
