    I removed the image and description because the poor quality of my picture did not do justice to the lens. I did not know how to delete this thread. I apologize for this. I may replace the image and description if/when I get an acceptable image.

    Anyone has this lens? I certainly want to compare this lens with the Canon FD 135/2.5. What adapter do u use for the m43?

    I don't have this lens, but I use a Fotodiox Canon FD to m43 adapter available on Amazon and possibly E*Bay. It works on my FD and FL lenses.

    This is one of my favorite lenses EVER. I have a lot of legacy glass and some nice native lenses as well. There's just something about the color and sharpness of this. Plus, it has the right amount of dampening on the focus ring, which is huge. These images are all shot wide open on an OM-D.

    I'm not sure why my photos didn't upload with this. Here's another attempt:

    135mm f2.5 with Helicoid Adaptor

    These were shot on my EM1 with the following adaptor:


    I was able to take the minimum focus distance from 5.5' to about 1.5 ft, thus giving it some rather thin DOF
    both shot wide open at 2.5
