    Hi! Everyone! Has anyone had the same experience with the new FD? Mine is a 50/1.4. On big adjustments it seems to be fine, but on those small adjustments, errrrr its sticks quite a bit, very far from my Takumar. I wanna know if there's a fix for this? Id appreciate your thoughts! TIA :) 
    BTW, this is my first post. Hello everyone! :)

    Hey, I have one of the old 50/1.4s and love it adapted for m43. Wish I knew of something to help with yours - just one thing comes to mind: lots of use. To speed that process up you can try twisting back and forth, and make your way over the range of the lens as you're watching a movie or such.

    How is the new 50/1.4 supposed to compare to the old ones?

    I dont own the old one-yet, but Id love to do a comparison, when I grab a hold of one. With my new FD, I dont know if it's grease that hardened with time or it really is like that since it is my first lens in the New FD mount. Thanks. I appreciate it :)
