    Tech panasonic Lumix G2

    just sold my old fuji finepix s9600, was a great bridge camera & served me well.
    i had bought a few bits for it over the last few years like extra add on lenses, flash gun, ND8 & 4, remote switch.
    sold for £120.
    so i bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 mirrorless reflex micro 4/3 rds. with 14-42 lens for £95 what a bargain.
    got my self an OM adaptor £9 & got my self a few old 1980's lenses,
    80-200 cost me £18
    2 x teleconverter £8
    & the lens i really love is my Olympus OM System Zuiko S 1:1.8 f=50mm manual focus, what a fantastic lens it is £14
    im looking at a 1000mm f/8.0 Mirror Tele Lens £125
    now my daughter(15 years old) is getting into photography, mainly food photography & she is getting good at it with my older fuji s5700
    now she has used my g2 she is wanting one, getting one with a lens for the price i got mine for is hard, i have now got her a DMC-G10K which
    is almost the same camera as the G2 but without the touch screen & only cost me £80 with 14-45 lens.
    it should be here on tuesday.

    Using my m4/3 cameras with old legacy lenses has got me back into photography, after losing interest, you will be scouring the car boots for cheap lenses soon, which is where i'm going now

    My Bridge is an old (10 years now) Panasonic DMC-FZ 20, great bit of kit, other than that I am all Four thirds (no micro) but I opted for Olympus and have an E 620 and an old E 1, same age as the Panny and the first Pro Olympus 4/3 camera, in fact the first DSLR designed from the ground up and not adapted from a film camera. I have a selection of Zuiko glass, one high end and others standard and a few old OM lenses used with a simple adapter, really good lenses for silly money. My point and squirt camera is an Olympus SZ-31MR which is a serious little bugger. .
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    Picked up 2 helios lenses today, a 44-2 and a 44M-4 for 6 quid

    The bokeh they produce gives photo's an almost painted look, well worth the money

    I remember and old film SLR I once had called A Zenit E.. the camera was a manual focus only job and the Helios was a 50mm.. It used to give amazing results then so I guess now they are even better..
    I seem to recall the camera was a Russian import I bought at Dixons
