    Top-'o-the-Morn Dana. Welcome to the forum. I also come from the film-only days of dinosaur cameras. This is a special forum full of great photographers and equally great people.

    Thanks folks. I've been lurking here since I got the Camera. Some very interesting threads.

    I keep reading about that 1. I'm using an adapter and a Super Tak 50/1.4 for now. With the 2x crop the 45mm should make a fine Portrait/Macro lens

    If you want one that truly doubles as portrait/macro, try the Leica 45mm f/2.8 Macro-Elmarit. :) Not as fast in aperture or focus as the m.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 (so maybe not quite as good a portrait lens) but it has true macro capabilities!
