    If you can focus them - these old MF lenses are mega and their use is really satisfying, something that makes the M43 format really interesting and addictive and expands the photographic "hobby" for us mere mortals

    Well done

    PS - it could be the UK

    I have the same lens mounted on my E-p2, with a close up adapter on it. Amazingly smooth out of focus.

    I LOVE this lens. Seems pretty sharp wide open. I think it produces excellent colors too. I really want a F1.4 version now.

    Could someone suggest a decent adapter for this lens?

    Thanks

    Had mine for a while but never took her out (was using the f1.4 instead)
    Somehow for close-up subjects the 55/2 does a better job than the f1.4: I can use it wide open with slightly more DOF and have clean bokeh. Stopping down the f1.4 to f2 (or beyond) gives ugly (to me) hexagons in the speckled highlights of the bokeh
