    The above shot was taken on my OMD.

    Does anyone else find the focus ring to be really stiff? It's good when trying to nail the focus but It's very hard work trying to chase a toddler around!

    You nailed the focus perfectly! It proves what I've said about this lens - as long as you nail the focus, dang it really gives you the best bang for the buck.

    1st time shots. Trying to get focus at f1.4. Love the bokeh and the color from this lens!

    Have to agree with Levster. The focus ring is really stiff, and the lens is heavy compared to other m4/3 lenses, but otherwise not difficult to use and the results of the large aperture make it worthwhile.

    I just got this lens - actually the Bell & Howell version

    These pics are nothing special - just a quick and dirty test to see how well this lens can isolate the subject from the background in m4/3 - and actually, several of these had particularly nasty looking backgrounds if they had not been blurred out: All at f1.4 with my G5:

    Beautiful rendering. Too bad I cannot manual focus fast enough for portrait because the way it pains the picture is so nice. My son cannot stay still. For static object with tripod, it should be OK.

    I love the look of the pictures from that lens.

    Question I have, would it make any difference whether I buy the f1.4 or the 1.5t cine lense? I plan to use the lens in the future for some videos.
    I'm just not sure if I would loose any 'quality' for stills using the cine lens. I understand that the cine lense does not have the stepped apperture. Anything else I would give up?
    Thank you

    I don't think you'd loose something for stills, but due to the lack of experience, I am not a 100% sure.

    So I got the Rokinon 85/1.4 for the Pentax mount the other day because I figured I could use it with my tilt adapter (takes pentax-K lens adapts them to micro-4/3rd but also offers up to 8 degree of tilt and rotates in whichever direction you need it to tilt to).

    Some results from that earlier tonight (I also have a 72mm to 58mm step down ring attached, which doesn't appear to affect the lens even when tilted, using that so I can easily take off the lens cap with the hood attached, and because the step down ring can act as a shade for the area of the lens not delivering light to the sensor):
