Re: Legacy Lens for Lumix G3

Get prime-lenses and forget zooms. You can get lenses quite cheap from Ebay UK, just look at the sellers who only post to UK. There are a lot of less bidders for those lenses and thus the prices keep low.

Buy lenses/adapters that have an aperture lock. This way you can first adjust the aperture and ISO (to get proper shutter speed), then use the aperture lock to open up the aperture for accurate focusing, and after focusing release the aperture lock to set the aperture back where it you had pre-set it. Then you just need to re-frame and release the shutter.
