After fiddling around with some other things, I started to pack things in my rucksack to go, and I noticed that the bedspread was damp. REALLY damp. I picked up the likely culprit, and indeed, the water bottle was leaking. It turns out that I had cross threaded the cap. THEN I discovered, much to my horror, that it had been leaking into my camera case!!! Poor old G10 never had a chance.
Fast forward a few weeks. This year, my Christmas present became a new camera to replace the venerable G10. After much vacillation, I settled on buying a discounted Panasonic GF3 with a kit 14-45mm zoom lens. One of my co-workers has one and I have been fairly impressed with the results he has been getting. But... one of the MAIN reasons I chose this new fangled Micro 4/3 format was to once again have a camera that I can mount Leica lenses on. Great theory.
I received the camera just in time to take it to Paris for the last trip of the year. The results were acceptable, though not spectacular.
As I said. Not spectacular, but acceptable.
What I am REALLY looking forward to is playing with the m4/3 to LTM adapter I got the other day. I tried it with a Russian Jupiter 11 135mm f/4. Can't focus too terribly close, but I can see some potential with Black and White.
Now that I have a new toy to mess with, look for more frequent updates to the blog.
