    For those wishing to know how the Opteka 85mm lenses work on m4/3 cameras- here's a simple photo.
    On my balcony, ambient light only.....85mm at f2.5.
    The lens is soft at f1.8- but one click down and it's sharp and stays that way for awhile- I think this lens is a good deal.

    (I rotated the image and had to blur the lower edges to make a horizontal crop- so the smears are just me pushing pixels to make the image rectangular.)

    Is this the Canon mount one? Can you post an image of what it looks like on camera?

    No this is the Nikon mount version.,,,but all the versions should be optically identical.

    I didn't know they made it for Nikon. That's the one I was thinking of. Do you have a pic of what it looks like on the camera? Is it large?
