    Shot handheld in dusk light, all wide open on an E-P1. Quite pleased with the close-focus and pleasant bokeh given the f4 minimum aperture. Rocking the retro vibe :)

    Just found one of these on ebay with original case, caps and hood for a little over £40. Lovely lens, seems to snap into focus. Same size as my first Pen lens, the 38mm f1.8, but probably less flexible as it's so much slower. Still, it's currently my widest legacy lens, and I'm enjoying it a lot.

    Seems to do landscape pretty well. This is a quick shot grabbed in a gateway on the way home from work.

    On paper it sounds like a boring lens, but the results seem to argue otherwise!

    With the f4 aperture you end up with most things in focus most of the time, however it has a pretty great close-focus distance so you can get some nice bokeh every now and again.

    The close focus on this is really handy. I'm always on the lookout for the f2.8 version but they seem to be steeply priced.
