    Well, after owning this lens for at least a year, I finally used it to take some photos, with the E-M5, first shot f/1.4 or f/2, ISO1600, 1/125s, sharpened slightly in Lightroom, and colour temperature made warmer.

    This one was taken at f/13, ISO200, 1/160s, colour corrected in Photoshop.

    Not bad Josh. Would be interesting to see a side by side comparison with the Oly 45mm f1.8.

    Nice lens Smile

    Pity you can't remember (not surprising 'cos it's hell to keep track of aperture used when I use manual lenses) whether it was 1.4 or 2 for the first one. If that was with the lens wide open, then WOW. My MD 50mm 1.7 is hopeless wide open. Thankfully it's pretty ok at the next stop of 2.8. Razor at 5.6.

    For my Pentacon 50mm 1.8, I start from f4. 1.8 and 2.8 are not worth my while. As for the other end, f11 is where it ends for sharpness. I don't hit f16 or 22.

    Yours is incredible at f13!! Cooor.

    Ooo...interesting idea StrayCat has...head to head with the Oly 45 Grin Same aperture for both, tripoded, IS OFF, manual focus. There'll be significant difference in field of view but that can be taken into account when looking at the results Smile
