    Fun with Leica R lenses on digital bodies ...

    Didn't know quite where to put this, so I started a new 'fun with' thread. ;-)

    I took out the Elmarit-R 180/2.8 and fitted it with an R to M adapter, then an M to Micro-FourThirds adapter, and snapped the Olympus E-PL1 on the back end. Just to give it a little tiny test of hand-holdability around the condo ...







    All: Olympus E-PL1 fitted with Leica Elmarit-R 180mm f/2.8

    The E-PL1's image stabilization works pretty nicely! These were all made between 1/160 and 1/300 second, lens opening f/4 to f/8. Lovely rendering from this lens ... as expected!

    enjoy

    Hi there Godfrey,

    please check out this thread: Fun with M & R Lenses on anything other then a Leica
    You'll find there lots of photo samples shot with R lenses.

    Anyway, your R180/2.8 is doing pretty good !

    Happy shooting.

    Kind regards.
