... adapted lenses and focusing

A few have suggested that I mount the 35/2 onto the G1 with an adapter. Do you get AF? I'm not really interested in manually focusing.

You never get autofocus with adapted lenses, or even auto-iris operation, unless the adapted lens to micro-FourThirds is a FourThirds lens (and even there, it depends on which lenses with Panasonic bodies).

The G1/GH1 are probably the very best bodies ever made for adapted lens use due to the excellent EVF and the way the metering works. But if you want auto focus, you'll have to stick with mFT and those adapted FT lenses that are supported for AF.
