GF1 with Leica f2 Summicron 35mm = 70mm

I'm very impressed with the GF1. I think it is just the ticket I've been waiting for to use for personal projects and street shooting. I was curious about using other lenses, so I ordered one of those $70 Fotodiox adapters for Leica M. Attached a 35mm f2 Summicron which is equivalent to 70mm on the GF1. All worked well and the new GF1 firmware makes focusing pretty painless (although I'm nowhere near as fast as the AF with the f1.7 pancake). I couldn't detect any problems with the IQ using the Summicron with the GF1. See pic of GF1 with lens. Yes, I blacked out most of the GF1's graphics.. just an old habit.
