I love the lens. Always have. I had to buy a new copy; my son lost the one I lent him about twenty years ago.
I'm slowly learning to manual focus again. Not there yet. My eyes (and flexibility) are the problem. I think for flower close ups I'm going to have to go to a tripod and the back screen, magnified, for focus. The blurriness here is me, not the lens. But perhaps it adds a nostalgic touch too.
I probably shouldn't mention it on this B+W forum, but the Konica does terrific colors too.
The 40mm on the GF1 was a perfect focal length and i really enjoyed it so i'm hoping for more of the same with the E-P1.
Although i really really don't need a G1 i do keep looking at them as they are SO cheap! I may buy a body and see what it's like. It looks like a bigger GF1 with viewfinder! If the IQ is the same then i think it could be an awesome camera but i already have a Canon 450d and the Oly E-P1 which i love to bits. I also have an Olympus Trip 35 and Olympus OM-2. How many cameras do i need?
