AF100 + Antique Leica Lenses = Geekout


One of the coolest things about Panasonic’s Micro 4/3 lens system is that it allows virtually any third-party lens to be used. Here is my AF-100 with a couple of antique Leica screw-mount lenses.

As you can see in this ungraded test clip, the old lens looks perfectly clean … There’s no discernible difference between the video shot by these 50+ year-old examples of Steampunk-looking hand-craftsmanship and the much more modern Canon FD glass I shoot with primarily. Of course, that’s an untested hypothesis; I’ll be shooting a comparison and posting it soon.

Geek out!
