You are right it is long!

By using the search facility I can narrow down those posts that have the word adapter or Commlite so it is not quite as onerous as viewing all 37 pages!!

Thanks for the link.

Re: EM1 and Canon EF lens via adaptor any good?

Just to help these are shot using my metabones adaptor (Metabones Canon EF to Micro 4/3 T 11 adapter Manufacturers Part Number: MB_EF-M43-BT2) and various canon lenses. It is on the G9 as Panasonic work well with adaptors and seem to actively support it at shows like the birdfair. I'm sure it would also suit various Olympus bodies I have tested on the em5 mk2 but I like the G9 more

All hand held and at normal settings (look on Flickr). The G9 and metabones gives full SAF and a very useful manual focus with picture in picture expanded focus window with peaking.

They are a bit larger on Flickr and I have more examples there. See this album https://www.flickr.com/photos/131956...57666995345617
