What makes this interesting is, I don't think Panasonic decided to come with the adapters out of the blue. This could mean that Leica is readying to manufacture micro 4/3 lenses. (Disclaimer: conjecture, speculation, void where prohibited by law.)

And most probably, there won't be any "compatibility" except like with the Voigtlaender adapter where they say that some lenses protrude too much or whatever. Anything else, the lenses will be fully manual. :-)

I still wonder.. can you manual focus using the E-view finders of the G1 and GH1? I use Leica R's with my Canon 5d and i had to buy the special focusing screen to be able to accurately focus.

BTW, i'm not sure if zooming in to focus is the perfect solution... not easy to compose a quick shot if zooming in.

Yes, yes, yes, yes; very, very interesting and entertaining and classy and oldtimer gets to challenge the current technology and I´d love to have this and...

[would it be the Leica S2?].
;o)

Here is the flickr group for the G1 with legacy and alternative lenses. If one has questions on this it might be the place to go...

Byron, with manual lenses if you want to shoot quick you'll usually pre-focus on the intended zone or straight to hyperfocal.

I beg to differ, with enough practice you can get surprisingly fast at focusing with an old-school RF.
