Anyone using manual focus lenses with the Panasonic S1/S1R?

Hey everyone,

Due to a change in projects, which will also include some video, I consider getting an L-mount camera. My current cameras either dont have any video at all (Monochrom) or barely (K-1&K-50)

The S1 or S1R seem the best option, and I've handled the R at a camera store. Very well built, great EVF, comfortable ergnomics, logical layout of buttons and switches; in some ways quite comparable to the K-1. I've also downloaded some S1&S1Rraw-files and these are very nice and malleable. An added bonus is the nice selection of native lenses in different price-segments and from 3 manufacturers, which puts the L ahead of the Canon & Nikon options in that respect.

One thing I have not found much about is the experience of adapted manual lenses on the S1(R).

Can anyone share some experiences? Or point me to some online sources, such as video demos?

Thanks a lot!
