    Last weekend was Stanford University's graduation ceremonies, and I was in the area, so I visited. I don't have any native m4/3 lenses past 45mm right now, so I borrowed a friend's Nikon 135/2.8 AI-S for the occasion.

    Optically the lens seemed pretty good. When I got the focus correct, images were sharp, although contrast was a little low. But with manual focus, my keeper rate was not, err, encouraging (a stabilized viewfinder would really have helped).

    A few of my more successful results below. E-PM1, processed in Lightroom.

    f/5.6
    i-4N89vwP-L.
    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/400s    ISO 400


    f/8.0
    i-Z9PqrFh-L.
    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/1000s    ISO 400


    f/2.8
    i-b2QN5bb-L.
    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/80s    ISO 800


    f/2.8
    i-QBptvkQ-L.
    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/250s    ISO 1600


    f/2.8
    i-zqPJPLW-L.
    E-PM1    ---       f/1.0    1/250s    ISO 800
