I would be curious to see how it compares to Oly 75mm (both at f1.8). Could be a much cheaper MF alternative. Aperture control is not important cause these lenses are meant to be used wide open (sometimes with ND filter).

Pretty good result, is it at f1.8?
I found Canon 85mm to be very sharp at f1.8 used on T2i, it exhibit green fringing though.
As much as I love the Canon 85/1.8, especially given it's low price, the O75/1.8 is the better lens with no doubt in my mind. As for using the 85/1.8 for m43, the biggest con is the MF ring and it's lack of smoothness and feel.
I disagree with being difficult. I just got my cheap little adapter today for my GX7. I find using my 85 1.8 easy with MF. I can get focus quick and accurate with it.
this was just playing around the yard at f2.0
I believe they're referring to the feel rather than the difficulty, when Canon lenses of this generation have a bit of use I find the focusing ring gets... gritty? for lack of a better word... due to sand or other dust between the ring and the body, they still focus fine and are perfectly serviceable however they loose the well damped silky smoothness and feel... rougher?
It's an amazing lens for the price, no doubt about that at all.
