    Hi all

    Just to let you know we have a short review of the Novoflex M to Micro Four Thirds adapter (link to Speed Graphic store site) in the 14 Feb issue (on sale 10 Feb). I used it with a collection Voigtlander lenses - both M and L. I used the L-M adapter coupled with Novoflex unit to get the screw lenses to fit.

    Hope you enjoy it

    It also works nicely combined with the Novoflex Leica M to Nikon adapter. :)

    We also stuck the OM adapter on it, which worked well too.

    It's amazing how much fun you can have with a few metal rings :D

    I'm really pleased AP decided to renew the Novoflex adapater; I think it's a great accessory for the G1 and using an M to Nikon adapter, I've used the G1 with lenses from 14mm to a 400 with 1.7x TC which gives an equivalent FoV of a 1340mm lens on 35mm. With M lenses, you can add a Leica accessory called an OUFRO which is a mini-extension ring; it allows you to use lenses for close focussing; the 90mm/f4 Elmar and 75mm/f2 Summicron work really well.

    Other reviewers say the G1 works less well with wides but I think it's great to be able to use my M glass in this way. Interesting to see too the G1 won an award in the AP awards. There are a few people who talk the camera down because it resists classification. For me, it's one of the most innovative developments in a long time.

    Well the image size is close to identical to 110, so the lenses should cover it no problem. Hmmm, using them could be fun!

    I want one! I have the 24mm and 18mm 110 lenses and they'd work so brilliantly on a G1!
