Totally agree about the tripod mount. Hanging a heavy lens, particularly an older mostly metal tele off the front of a GF3 might not be such a good idea.

Also, not all FD lenses work out of the box on m43. I bought an FD 135 f3.5 and there was no way to open and close the aperture and I couldn't even get the "toothpick fix" to work as I had done with the FD 50 1.8. Because of this aperture problem re: FD lenses, I much prefer AI Nikkors. Older Nikon AI lenses may be slightly more $$ on Ebay, but they work without any fiddling or toothpick hacks.
