I still keep an E-520 with a replacement split-image and microprism screen as my basic stabilized digital back for use with legacy film SLR glass. It's much more ergonomically balanced for that task than the Micro 4/3 bodies are, although I wish the sensor were better in low light.

I recently was looking at extending the reach of my lens sets at the long end for both Nikon 1 and Micro 4/3, but doing so without a major outlay of bucks. I decided to experiment with front-mounted teleconverters, after reading some very interesting blog postings from a fellow named Dr...

Several months ago, I had purchased the Nikon DX 55-300mm AF-S VR lens for use on my Nikon 1 setup with an FT-1, and frankly, I was not overwhelmed by it, especially when shooting at the long end, wide open.
As a result - along with the general unavailability of the 70-300mm Nikon cx lens, as...
