Thanks I was just curious how it would do against strong light point light sources at night. At f2 I am impressed. It actually seems to do better than the zeiss 21mm f2.8.

Has anyone here tried the Nikon G adapter for Micro Four Thirds, like this one:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Objektiv-Adapter-f-Nikon-G-an-M4-3-Kameras-NEUWARE-/280853062314

I am puzzled by the description, which appears to say that it is *only* for G lenses. I presume if you don't use it with D or older lenses that it will work fine?

I thought the G adapters had the ability to stop the lens down as you can't do it on the lens. Am guessing you could put a non G lens on and manually stop down the aperture on the lens, leaving the adapter setting off?
I don't have G lenses so went with the normal adapter - works great apart from the lenses will now focus past infinity, you must remember to actually focus on infinity

Carstenw, I am sure you are aware that using that adapter, unless the lens has an aperture ring to manually change the aperture you can only use it wide open. I don't know anything about Nikon gear but do G series lenses have aperture rings? I have lots of adapters and the cheap ones are good,.

I have the equivalent for the EOS to m4/3 wwhich has an inbuilt aperture which works quite well up to a point with certain lenses.
Hope this has some relevance to your post.

Hmm, I had a typo in my question, an important one: I meant that I presume that this G adapter also works for older, non-G lenses. My guess is exactly as yours, I was just wondering if anyone had actually tried one.

Julian, EOS lenses have electronic stop-down, which is why the adapter needs either electronics or its own aperture. Nikon lenses have mechanical stop-down, even G lenses which have no aperture. There is a little lever on this adapter which pushes the lever on the lens, to stop it down. I was just wondering if anything gets in the way on older lenses.

Primarily, I want to try my 70-200/2.8 VRII on my E-PL3, but I also have some other lenses with aperture rings which I would like to try, such as my 100MP and Leica 180/2.

I bought a Dremel today, and will modify my TC1.4 to take my 180/2. This will make a kick-ass 250/2.8 for my E-PL3, with effective 500/2.8 focal length with the depth of field of f/5.6. This could be a lot of fun, especially when I get the E-PL5!

Ok Carstenw. I dont have a clue about Nikon. I do have fun with the eos adapter being able to use the 400f5.6 equivalent 800m. Love the 200mmf2.8L and of course the macro is great as I only use manual focus on macro anyway.

Should be getting my EM-5 next week and can't wait to participate in this thread again. Gonna have a shoot out between it and my Xpro1 and see which best suits my needs. The resolution with this new sensor looks much better than my old EP-3 and GH2. Hardest decision I face at the moment is between getting the Panny 12-35 or the Oly 12 and Panny 25 as I already bought the Oly 45 again as at its price, that is one lens no one should pass up. Any one tried the 12-35 on the EM-5 yet? Just wondering if I can get enough seperation of subject and background with the 2.8. I had the 12 and 25 and lived them but having to change lenses was a pain at times.
