    This Mir1B1 was tested using a Panasonic GX1 in overcast light, and I will say (while not as sharp as the Flektogon) it performed admirably. I like the focusing ring cut outs, makes it easy to "feel" for the focusing ring. This lens has two aperture rings, which confused me at first, but the user gets used to it.

    Construction wise- it's a solid, well made (no plastic here!) lens... and it would be a good candidate for use instead of a kit lens.

    Seems to be single coated.. with a slight tinge of color in the glass. The price was very affordable as well.

    The Mir-1B is a lovely lens that renders colours - especially greens - beautifully. I find that a preset aperture is my favourite type of aperture control and seems to work beautifully on ยต4/3. Great lens. Congrats on the purchase.

    Correct, the English transliteration is V, I routinely used W as I'd use it in my native language :)
