    EDIT: The lens is actually a Rokinon rebrand. If a mod could change the title it would be great :) 

    Very impressive IQ for the price ($399 on ebay, manufacturer refurb). A challenge to get focus right when wide open. One problem I found was it moves a bit on the adapter which is MMF-2. The adapter itself moves a bit on the camera body as well (OM-D), but only sideways and very little so I don't think it affects focusing.

    Here are some samples both at f/1.4. Shot at raw, no other post processing save increase in exposure.

    Looks good to me, and that's a great price.
