HI Howard,

Your pictures of Italy and th Côte d’Azur remind me very much of some of my 
favorite places. I do not know 
Pitigliano, but it reminds me of San Gimignano where I was last summer, to 
coming back via Nice and Cannes. You made 
some beautiful pictures. And quite brave to put those heavy long R lenses on 
the G1, they must be much heavier than the 
body, careful not to break the camera

Here some of my Leica pictures of Italy and France:


My G1 pictures are not yet up on my site, they are all on the 4/3 forum in 
various threads: http://forum.getdpi.

>I have the Novoflex R to M adaptor and the Rayqual M to Micro 4/3rd

>Since taking those pictures I have changed the bayonets on my R lenses

>As you compare I think perhaps you can see the advantages of the

>With the Rayqual adapter I have also used most of my M lenses on the
