A few Lens Questions

Hi guys,
Being new to the GY-HD200U, I have a few questions.

I was wondering how many of you have used the 2/3 to 1/3 adapter, and what sort of results are you getting.
I have a whole swag of High end 2/3 lenses and wondered if its worth going down that path.

I have also picked up a brand new HZ-CA13U to play around with some PL Primes, but was also wondering what results can be had using it with a Nikon Mount adapter......... I have a large collection of Nikon Primes.

And finally, for now anyway, haha , what would the disadvantage of shooting the whole thing (the outdoors program I am doing) in 720/50p as apposed to 720/25p as it seems to be a whole lot smoother.

Thanks for any help

first thing

is make sure John you have a NLE that supports it. Edius and FCP, and possibly Liquid do. The 50p that is, but in truth, unless you choose another recording format using a higher bitrate, the hdv 50p is really blocky, and subpar for broadcast purposes due to high motion codec break up.
