Sorry, after an extended hiatus, I've updated the listings again. I'm going to need to think a bit about what makes sense for the manual-focus m4/3 category as the numbers are becoming a bit overwhelming and there are an increasing number of 'toy' and 'cinema' lenses which probably aren't of general interest.

I think there are some Chinese lenses that are good enough to be considered mainstream and could be added. Specifically, those from 7Artisans and the Kamlan 50mm f1.1

Yi 45mm f1.8 AF Micro 4/3

Another lens to include

With the recent price fall on web-selling sites to GBP £72 with postage - the Yi 42.5mm F1.8 now becomes a price concious option against the Panasonic or Olympus 42.5mm F1.7. UK Amazon price for the Panasonic H-HS043E-K Lumix G Lens - Black (42.5 mm Focal Length, F1.7 Aperture is GBP 299- more than 4 times as much

It has AF but no OIS - has a native M4/3 mount that is plastic.

Danny Boyd reviewed it very favourably on a GX85 body against the Olympus.

Has anyone on the Forum had a try themselves? At 1/4 the cost - is it 1/4 the quality - or is it "good enough" to make the list for our camera bags?

Best wishes - Paul
