E-PL1 with manual lenses
Aug 4, 2010

I bought a E-PL1 to give my manual lens collection a digital life. I have been having a blast using my old Canon FD lenses again (especially the f1.4) and even have an adapter for my Hassy lenses. This is my question to those in the know here. If the micro 4/3rd conversion for 35mm lenses is 2X (where 50mm becomes 100), would my Hassy lens need a 4X conversion factor for the camera's IS lens-length setting? For reference to my logic, I'm using the diagonal distance of the sensors where 4/3rd=21mm, 35format=43mm, and 6x6=85mm. Is my thinking right on the conversion factor for using a Hassy lens on my E-PL1?
