True. The question is, which Canon lens to get if the 135mm Pentax lens happens to be a good one? I already have a 50mm 1.7, which performs well. Perhaps a macro would be good. Any recommendations?

Those are two very interesting solutions. Thanks for sharing.

The second solution is not needed becasue you have a G1, not a 4/3 DSLR.

FD lenses, try 50mm F1.4 S.S.C, 200mm F4 S.S.C, FD 35-105mm F3.5

Should be able to find these quite cheaply

Thanks for the recommendations, dnas. I have my eyes on a few FD lenses and the 50mm 1.4 is one of them. I just received a Takumar (Pentax) 135mm 2.5. I took 7-8 shots with it but haven't had a chance to upload them yet. However, I noticed that due to the long focal lens, it is not easy to stabilize the camera enough to get blur-free images.

I do have a question. Should I switch the IOS mode in the menu to OFF when I'm shooting with those manual lenses? Does it make any difference? I'd think not since the G1 does not have in-body IS. Any thoughts?

Yes, you need to be aware that there's no stabiliser with MF lenses. Back to the old technique for those!!!

I don't bother with turning the stabiliser off, as I don't think it should make any difference.

Actually, I checked the menu and the stabilizer mode option is grey'ed out. So, it will only work with supported AF lenses.
