Thanks & greatly appreciate it. I'm very interested in your combo with alternate lenses and try it out. What is your personal experiences on G2, like/dislike? One last thing, where can I buy that alternate lenses and accessories kit like you posted it in here (I'd like to know the cost also, please).

Thanks again.

Jeff

My lenses are 1-30 years old :-)

You can buy adapters for m4/3, NEX, NX, ... in China for $ 10 ... $ 50
Look ebay.com

Lumix cameras are excellent - but others too!

Thanks DonalDuc. You have all kinds of antique & modern lenses that can be useful with updated camera bodies. Today I found on ebay a couple of lenses for M4/3. I'd like to know if they can be used on G2 body with proper adapters. The lenses are as follows: (described by seller)

AF Confirm OM lens to Olympus 4/3 adapter & 2 OM lenses

You will receive a AF confirm, Olympus OM lens to Olympus 4/3 lens adapter PLUS 2 OM Lenses.
First lens: Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm 1:1.8
Second Lens: Vivitar (Olympus OM mount) 75-205mm 1:3.8
Both lenses are in very good condition. Vivitar lens comes with front and rear caps and sturdy carrying case.
Olympus lens has no caps, but does come with a carrying pouch.
Af adapter works great and was purchased two months ago....but no longer need as I am changing platforms.
AF adapter will be attached to Vivitar lens.

For using Olympus DSLR cameras such as E620 E520 E510 E500 E420 E410 E400 E330 E3 with Olympus lenses. It supports infinity focus.
You should remember that the pusher with the fixed ring doesn’t work, so diaphragm control of the lens is set manually. It is possible to use Macro rings and other accessories.

Removing:
To remove the adapter you should unpress fixative pin and turn the adapter anticlockwise.
The built in "Confirm" chip tells your camera that the lens is in manual mode, allowing the "in-focus" lights to operate correctly in the viewfinder. You need to set the aperture by hand however you can set your camera to Aperture Priority (Av) mode to use the camera's automatic exposure facility. The chip allows all metering modes supported by your camera.

What is the camera like for low light shooting and how responsive is the AF?

Focussing is done (of course) manually - but it works with Lumix magnifying option fast and precise.
Macros I always make manually - with Canon it's very fast AF possible.

So, the Canon 50mm is manual focus only? What mount do you use to marry it to the panasonic? Ta
