    Hi everyone.
    Seems like a friendly place. Using a G2 with the 14-42mm and eagerly awaiting my FD adapter from Hong Kong so I can whip the 50mm and 28mm off my old T90 and see how they fare on a m4/3 body.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
     
  9. Hi, I'm also new here and use FD lenses. I'm not sure what 28mm you have but the nFD 28mm f2.8 is the most commonly used lens on my E-P1. It's biggest issue is CA and also that it is just not quite wide enough for my liking (I'm currently waiting on a 24mm). I rarely use anything much longer in a prime lens but the plain jane nFD 50mm f1.8 works very nicely on :43:. I haven't been very impressed with the old breech-lock 50mm f1.4s with the exception of one of my f1.4 chrome-noses which is quite sharp.

    I have the non-breech 28mm and a breech lock 50mm 1.8. Not convinced of the breech lock's capabilities, some of my film shots I seem to have focused behind the subject (which I'd have thought near impossible on a manual focus camera with a split prism finder) so it may actually be faulty, although I can't get my head around the physics of how that could happen. I have a 70-210 on the way as well.
