    How do you feel this compares to the Fujian 35mm f1.7? (you had that one as well if I recall correctly, yes?)

    This version offers a clearer image than the Fujian 35mm. I would say this lens is more NORMAL than the Fujian. When I use the Fujian is cause I want to add that somewhat swirlyish bokeh it has... The Fujian 25mm has more.. but with these APS-Cs i find the quality almost close to other legacy adapted glass. Either way I am keeping both, as they offer different looks from each other.

    My daughter decorated a Gingerbread Man today at school... So I thought it would be subject to test out the 3 CMounts (25, 35 & 50)...

    These are the images I captured with my GX7 & APS-C 35mm f1.6. Images were shot wide open @ f1.6.

    THe focus peaking and magnification helped out a lot with these shots... Check out the new SHOWCASE thread for the 50mm...

    I took this yesterday at Disneyland. The lens does great at close and mid rang focusing. Had a little trouble at infinity. I am gonna try a different adapter.

    Stellar results, Ed. That incoming bee looks a menace.

    thanks! yeah the Greyface killer! I watched them for a bit. The butterflies would not let the bee in. ;)

    I am really impressed with these lenses so far. They only seem to infinity focus on one of my adapters, so need to figure out a way to make them work with my other adapters. Close and mid focusing not an issue. Just infinity.

    This is a 45 Euros / 50 $ USD no brand Made in China lens. Here wide open and with minor post-processing (on camera RAW to JPEG). I'm very, very pleased with the results. What do you think?



    Not totally related but let me say that I've sold my M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 and this 35mm "thing" makes me happy enough!
