L1 begats G1
My Panasonic L1 has been complemented by little sister G1 .
I love the cross grid , waist level ' finder ' and my tiny CV 35mm f 2.5 Color Scopar will soon be adapted as my prime lens ... impossible with standard 4/3rds.
However , I have given the L1 ' brick ' a new lease of life with an Olympus 14 / 42 zoom as the f2.8 Leica zoom is superb , but so clumsy .
This will make it on par with a Nikon D90 in terms of weight , if not image quality , but I love using it , especially now I have dee'scovered that it has live view !
I tried it on the Leica Dig 3 , but it stays on 10x magnification , so never persisted with the L1 spare body .
Is it not odd that the micro 4/3rds has boosted sales of old manual lenses ,
whereas 4/3rds raised just a whisper !
I guess they will go up in price now !
