This evening I borrowed Mitchie’s MMF-2 adapter, because I was contemplating this copy of it, which is only about 1/3rd of the price of that original one.
First I used Mitchie’s ZD 40-150mm lens set to 73mm wide open (f=4.6), and took this hand held with 1/15th of a second (that was +0.3EV):
Then I mounted my OM Zuiko 1:1.8 50mm lens set to f=2.8, and manually focused this during a short walk, using the VF-2 viewfinder and no magnification:
Pretty good results. But do I need such an adapter? Hmmm. I have the 50mm macro lens almost permanently attached to my SLR, and I also have that 40-150mm for it. In fact, as long as I can have Mitchie’s 20mm attached to my Pen, I have something like the perfect two camera kit. And since she has that sweet new 45mm kind of permanently attached (since almost 4 months or so), I’m glad if I can borrow that shorter Panasonic lens from her.
The adapter? Hmmm. Sometimes. Just for a change. But then I can also borrow that from Mitchie I guess…
Thanks for viewing.
