    Wow, the bokeh and subject isolation on some of those is really, really nice! I guess it ought to be, for the price of one of those Leica 90mm f/2 lenses, even used :biggrin:

    I'm itching to try the X-E1 out already, that did not help any!

    I've used the X Pro and the 80mm Summilux-R f/1.4. What a combo! I heavily considered getting the X Pro after using it with Leica glass for the night. Once I switched to some of the native glass I wasn't as impressed (mainly because of focus speed). But I got some killer portraits from that 80mm. Glad I stuck with m4/3 and got the OM-D instead though.

    One from that combo.

    Sorry :wink:. I guess I have to put my gear envy on someone else. When you have a relative with a huge case of Leica gear, a 645D, X-Pro 1, etc. etc. It's hard to feel just satisfied with m4/3. Although he is impressed by the results of the EM-5 especially. I bought the Voigtlander VM adapter to try out some of his glass sometime, but haven't seen him much recently.
