What adapter are you using? I have this lens and want to use it on my E-PL1.

Wah! My Konica 50mm f/1.4 is just arrived today, but my 40mm f/1.8 which has the AR adapter has been sitting in customs since last week! T_T Stupid Postal service... they said 3-4 days, the liars.

I know what you mean. It is always hard waiting for a lens to arrive. I am waiting for a Hexanon 28mm 3.5 to arrive. I already have 2 but I put such a low bid in, I didn't expect to win and got it for $12.50.

Just got this lens and I'm loving it. I don't have any experience with adapted lenses, and this is my first lens with such shallow DOF. That being said, here's one of the first shots I took with the Konica and my G3 (wide open; straight OOC jpg). Perhaps a little out of focus (I still need some practice), but I'm excited!

This lens has spent more time on my camera than I thought it would. I'm surprised by how many keepers of my 1-year old it's produced. Wide open the focus is a little soft, but sometimes I actually like the look it produces. At f/2 though the images seem to be nice and sharp. Here's a DOF test shot (f/2) I did while practicing. Just made a slight level adjustment to it in photoshop. Also I took this with the help of my Metz 50. I was pleasantly surprised at how well auto TTL worked.

attached is example of the wide open glow.

btw, I just learned that I have the f1.4 - f22 lens rather than the f1.4- f16 lens.

Had the privilege of shooting some timed trials with this lens (which is usually always on me) yesterday, running through our streets downtown for the Tour of Alberta 2013.

Most images were shot at f/5.6 and approximately 180s shutter. I stopped it down enough to ensure every shot got a bit of motion blur at the speeds they were going.
