Are there any serious users of MF lenses on this forum?

Re: Not legacy, but designed for µFT and still manual focus

Manual focus works well with the EVF and just judging by eye-sight (no focus peaking necessary for me).

No electronic contacts, so obviously no automatic magnification upon touching the focus ring. But I mapped magnification to Fn Button 1.

Thanks Roel, I just get the impression that there are number of MF lens users in various configurations out there but they all must be hiding. Which means that those who have been buying all those MF adapters for M4/3 must be just out quite sensibly using them.

I bought the first m4/3 camera when it came out (G1) & the two slow zoom lenses @ the time.  Not at all happy with the slow glass I started buying legacy lenses & adapted them & used them almost exclusively until I bought my E-M5 & started buying native lenses.  I accumulated about thirty vintage lenses with M39, M42, MC/MD, FD & PK mounts.  Now that I have faster native glass, I rarely go to my collection except for macro.
