EOS adaptor on G1....

There were requests to see the RJ (jinfinance/ebay) EOS-> m4/3fds adaptor with EF lenses on the G1. I took some pics of this combo yesterday for anyone interested. The adaptor is well made, works well and is secure with the heavier lenses but of course has no electrical contacts so shooting with the EFs is wide open unless you change the aperture via an EOS body, holding down the DOF preview while dismounting and then use only that aperture on the G1 (or EP-1) untll changed again by mounting on an EOS body.

Here is the adaptor.

and there are 8 more with the 50 f/1.4 and 45 f/2.8 TS top side and 3/4.

The combo works well--but I ask 'why?' except for specialty lenses like the tilt shift or Lensbaby, etc. There are smaller/lghter MF lenses out there (unless you have these lenses, don't wish to buy more, etc.--but you offset the idea of the G1/#P-1 as small/light at that point).

I also have a number of photos on Pbase shot with TS, LB and 50 f/1.4 if interested--starting here and 9 of them http://www.pbase.com/picnic/image/113978605
and here for 3 with 50 f/1.4
