    I would like to hear from anyone who has used the Zuiko 50 f2 4/3 lens on a G1.

    I had this lens and it was slow to focus on the G1. It was also rather slow on my E-3.

    I went for the PL 45mm f/2.8 and am happy with it. The PL is 1:1 whereas the ZD 50 is 1:2.

    I beleive G1 doesn't support AF for 50mm f2 lens. I use this lens with my E-PL2 via MMF-2 adapter and it performs wonderfully. AF is certainly fast enough in most situations so no need to MF. It's a great portrait lens and it's as sharp as Panny 20mm!

    I used this lens on E-PL1 and it focuses rather slow but still usable. it is VERY sharp a lens as all the reviews are saying, is the lens of choice to to test Oly cameras on dpreview. Works great for macro and portraits.
