Pentax-110 24mm on Panasonic G1

Photographer Sasha Vasko wanted to get his Pentax-110 24mm lens on a Panasonic Lumix G1. I am sure you remember the G1, but do you remember the ultra small Pentax 110 series, it was quite popular at the days with a wonderful array of lenses.

By hacking the old lens with a C-mount to Micro 4/3 adapter (going through a 55mm filter stack cap, a faceplate and the lens mount and aperture assembly from the original sacrificed Pentax-110 Auto camera) Sasha created a match.

Here are the images showing the parts Sasha used

    The camera was already damaged and not working – not worth restoring.
