Saved A Lens The adaptor for my new GH2 have arrived. It allows me to use one of my old 35mm SLR lenses, the Rollei HFT Planar 50mm f/1.8, to the Micro Four Third camera. Have tested it today. Typical of German lenses, the first few shots were excellent. The stills were extremely sharp but slightly over exposed. I will try it with a (ND) neutral density filter. Later, would be doing a few HD Videos trials. The vintage Rollei lens. This QBM (Quick Bayonet Mount) to m4/3 fitted perfectly. Naturally as with old SLR lenses, the aperture and focus would strictly be on manual selection. Do not forget to select "shoot without lens" on the camera setting.
