Default EPL1 + Canon FD 50mm - Halloween is coming

Some of these decorations were hanging and moving around as the wind was gently blowing. I was still able to capture some sharp shots with the combo. Next I'm going to try my Vivitar 55mm 1:1 macro.

oh nice. that is some nice FDs. the 135 is a nice tele

the 50mm looks good, similar to mine which i really like.

These lenses were cheap until the m4/3 became popular.

I am glad I am oppose to legacy MF lenses, with the price of the FD, OM and K mount MF lenses just going up in price. It could get a bit expensive.

Indeed it does get expensive. Right after I bought the G1, I joined many m4/3 forums and some of them have members who are big on old glasses. After seeing the possibilities and capabilities of those MF lenses, I started buying them. However, not all perform well and due to the fact that the G1 does not have IBIS, lenses with a FL greater than 90mm became a problem, making me stay within the 90mm limit (I'm not that big on carrying a tripod/monopod along with me). That was my primary reason for buying the EP1 but then I ran into the lack of EVF problem. I think I'm pretty much done with buying old glasses, unless they are outstanding and I can get them for cheap. Otherwise, I'll save the money for the newer HD/AF lenses.
