Re: EOS adaptor on G1....Diane B

Yes, the brilliant thing about the m4/3rds is that everything is interchangeable between the cameras. I did try out the EP-1 when I bought the 17 f/2.8 but think I only tried the MA-1 adaptor (4/3rds to m4/rds) with the Konica Hexanon 40 f/1.8 and the FD to m4/3rds adaptor with the 24 f/2.8.

The Canon EF lenses will be large--and unbalanced. Someone said that only the little 'buzzy' 35/2 and 50 f/1.8 work on the m4/3rds, but on the G1 the 50 f/1.4 and 28 f/1.8 weren't bad, balance wise---but I have other MF lenses (smaller) that work. But--there's no doubt that they will mount and the results should be very nice.
