Default panasonic GF2

i bought the GF2 body only roughly 2 years ago at a steal since it was already outdated 2 years back..

never really got into using it and probably took less than 200 shots since i got it.. i never had a panasonic lens, but i did mnaged to use an olympus EPL-1 kit lens on it, the rest of the time i use legacy lenses on it (mostly PK mount).

anyway, was pleasantly surprised on the outcome of the shot below..

shot with the GF-2 and a Samyang 8mm pk mount via an adapter, multi exposure of 4 shots (3 of the shots just to complete the car trails on all directions).

shot this side by side with the sony a3500 using the same lens..

The adaptamatic lens i got together with 2 other lens off EBAY for only USD$24.00.. i wasnt even looking at this lens when i was bidding for it. i was looking on the other lens that was included in this package which was a Takumar 135mm F/3.5 in mint condition complete with original caps, hood and case.

after more than 4 years the GF2 body was in my ownership, i finally did a DIY conversion of the body to a full spectrum camera, it means i have a naked cmos sensor since i removed both the dust reduction glass and the hot mirror in front of the m43 sensor..

no replacement glass was used, instead i adjusted the position of the sensor further infront of the lens mount.. no idea if AF would work since i dont have m43 lenses to test with, but adapted Minolta a-mount glass can focus to infinity.. sample image below after conversion/removal of IR blocking filter.

I just got a Digimate (just a different name for the same 8mm lens) for my D5300, Ive already shot some pix and vid with it to play with... looking forward to some serious work.. for $100, so far.. Im pretty impressed!!

Thank you for posting!

the GF2 being DIY modified to full spectrum (removing the hot mirror and the dust reduction filter).
above was the 4th time i opened the camera due to micro readjustment of the sensor and finally cutting a 3mm uv filter to replace the original hot mirror as i have problem focusing to infinity on adapted wide angle lenses..

below the result after the final adjustment. with an 18-55 pentax DA lens and 720nm IR filter
