Nice lens it is. It's a nice length for portraits.
I like mine a lot.
You'll enjoy it in low light... The contrast is just right.

I totally agree streetshooter, this little guy looks like will have most of my job done.
Also waiting to test my vivitar 28 f/2.5, friend of mine said it is a sharp lens too. Now I have 20/1.7,28/2.5, 40/1.8.50/1.4 and 55/2.8 macro. Only lens I need to fill up the gap would be something between 60mm - 85 mm,so I am considering a voigtlander 75/2.5 and also when the 50/.95 come out later will try to replace my 50/1.4.
BTW just forgot to mention the rokkor 45/2, I believed it's a good lens too.
This is the 45/2 wide open:

I used to have the 45 but I traded it years ago for the 40 Cron. I lost the Cron a long time ago.....great lens....

Does anyone know if a 4/3 converted Konica Hexanon AR 40mm f/1.8 will work on an Olympus E-P2 via an Olympus MMF-2 4/3-to-micro4/3 adapter? Thanks.

i do not know, but i suspect it would work fine .... ask hohoho for confirmation ,

a suggestion.. take off the 4\3 converter and buy the nicely made rj konica m4\3 adapter and attach that directly , the rj adapter was about 35-40 dollars


thanks for the vote of confidence shooter but im not the encyclopedia you think i am

cheers brother !

Hey,

I just got conformation that it will work. BTW, the conversion is semi-permanent:

So, there's no adapter to take off.

Thanks bro,

Sabesh.

See the way the lens cuts. It seperates nicely from the background without too much compression.
Some call it Bokeh but I don't believe in bokeh.
I never saw it in real life so I don't believe it exist.
We don't have bokeh here on Philly...
We have bouquet tho....

Great shots Rohani! Best shots so far that I've seen of the Thaipusam parade, very candid, and looks like they were taken by a real human being :)

Well, that is the downside of manual lenses; You just never remember....
1.8 is kind of soft so I guess it is not that. I suppose it must have been 2.8 or maybe 4...
