    I figured I'd start the archive thread for this. I've posted these before, but they're my examples so far with this lens. Great lens...very good overall image quality. These examples are all wide open at f/2 on a GH2:

    chloe_fd135.

    flamingo_fd.

    flower_fd.

    lions_fd.

    It was shot at f2 or f2.8 with my GH1 and you can see the purple fringe are quite strong in certain situation.

    I am sorry to say this. It look like a composite of 2 images.:confused:

    There's far less CA in this lens than I expected there to be...

    I love this lens. Micro four thirds can do full body portraits without of focus backgrounds. You just need a long enough lens with a wide enough aperture. If I had an few extra grand, I'll be quite happy autofocusing a 150mm f/2 on an E-M1. In the meantime the FD 135mm f/2 is a pretty nice poor man's version.

    _B020108.

    _B070015.

    _B070016.

    In two months, I'll have money saved up to put a metabones speedbooster on this lens. I'm excited to see how the (already quite good) IQ improves as a 96mm f/1.4.

    Should be impressive with the speedbooster!
