Default Sony/Minolta(AF) to M4/3 adapter

If you have some Sony/Minolta AF(A mount) lenses laying around, this adapter can put them into good use. It has built-in aperture control which you can adjust the aperture by turning the ribbed ring on the bottom of the adapter. I am going to test out this adapter a a Minolta 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens which I bought from Ebay for $42 awhile back. I find using the a long zoom on the Panasonic G3 a little more difficult than my Olympus E-PL1 because of lack of IBIS. Anyway, it is useable and I am going to take it out today for a test drive. I am bringing a tripod just in case.

Default At Patterson Ranch, Fremont

The mustard plants fields at the Patterson Ranch broom very year around this time after heavy rain. The plants will be harvested by a grower who would sell them and turn them into Grey Poupon, Mustard paste or powder.
