    Just got this lens and I'm waiting on the adaptor in the mail. Would love to see some sample shots if anyone has one :)

    (and of course I will put some of my own as soon as that adaptor arrives)

    Just got my adaptor. :)

    Which version did you get?

    I have the 50/1.4 LTM, 50/1.4 FL, 50/1.4 SC, and 50/1.4SSC. They are all good.

    The LTM lens will be my choice for the EP2.

    Here it is on the M8

    Wide-Open at F1.4.

    At F4

    Trivia: the Canon 50/1.4 in LTM is a 6 element in 4 group lens, made with a then new high-index of refraction glass with low dispersion. It is not radioactive. The FL mount 58/1.2 is radioactive.

    Thanks!

    Thanks CalebPhotographer! I think I might order. I really like the idea of some nice lenses but have no budget for it. I like the panasonic 20mm 1.7 but cant justify $450+

    I have the 1.8 SC version, a little bit older as well, but I cant get anything to be sharp at 1.8. Even at 2.8 its never quite in focus and has a lot of flaring. The 1.4 looks 100x better. Im still thinking of the 17mm 2.8 for something brighter.
    The 28mm 2.8 is good, but the colour is not as clear as with my olympus lenses. Also less sharp than the 14-42 zoom.
    Looking at this thread on another site, my images are nowhere near this sharp:

    http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1041&thread=35761842&page=1
    I will post my pics tomorrow.

    Any thoughts? could be my 28mm lens is not the best.

    the FD or FDn 35mm f2 is very good for the money

    IMO the 50mm 1.4 is not the best and not that sharp esp wide open. I sold mine and reply on the 50mm f/3.5 macro which I found to be a better lens.

    I agree with Bill teh 35mm f/2 is very very good but fairly expensive at around £100 for a decent one that has been refurb'd. The 28mm I must admit I have found to be fine with good colour, does depend on what RAW converter you use though!

    50mm 1.8 photo sample

    Here is the best I can do by stopping down to a 4.0 which is a closer comparison to my kit zoom at 25mm with f4.5. I also have very nice results from the 28mm canon at f2.8 (in the photos).
    From left to right:
    1) 28mm canon f2.8, iso 250
    2) 50mm canon f4. iso 320
    3) 50mm canon f2 iso 200
    4) 25mm olympus kit zoom, f4.5 iso 320

    can anyone comment on what im seeing with the blurry photo. i checked the focus and at f4 things are in focus.

    Didn't focus on the bee in this one as it was a multi shot and the bee showed up in the middle:

    I didn't use the viewfinder for this as I didn't have one, but seeing how many photos I blew made me drive over to Keeble & Shuchat and buy one.
