    Just bought this lens together with a sweet-looking Canon EF body.

    Looking forward to using with my Panasonic G2. Will post some samples tomorrow.

    Nice pics...the lens has aged well! Is it massive on your camera?

    This lens is very compact, only slightly bigger than Canon FD 50/1.4.

    Let me know if you ever want to part with the EF. I could use a backup ;)

    Never! This is probably the finest 35mm camera I have ever seen.

    Today I completed my initial batch of test images. My impressions:

    - Wide open, the lens is slightly hazy and is somewhat prone to purple fringing and spherochromatism. However, when focused properly, it is capable of resolving pixel-level detail on Micro 4/3 cameras, which is a remarkable achievement for 36-years old glass. Bokeh is pleasant, although not totally smooth.

    - Stopped down to f/4, the lens is perfect. Great sharpness, great contrast, superb colour, almost no CA, extremely smooth and pleasant bokeh.

    - For me, 100mm FL (or 200mm EFL) is probably the longest I can comfortably focus and shoot without IS.

    Overall this is a great lens and it will probably see much use both in my digital and analogue kits.

    Some pictures from today's photowalk, all shot wide open and developed in Lightroom (unless stated otherwise):

    Another macro shot using Canon FDn 100mm f/2.8 lens and Kenko AC Close-Up No. 3 diopter.

    This is a piece of romanesco cauliflower.

    My 100mm f/2.8 exemplar focus ring is pretty stiff. I've looked around on the internet but didn't find a guide. Do you know guys maybe how to disassemble and maybe grease it?

    No special background but a refrigerator. Used the flash of the GX7 and locally underexposed some reflections on the left side of the rose.
