    This lens is super sharp and renders beautifully, if you ask me.

    The first image is taken with f/5.6 to show sharpness and color rendering.


    A couple images with shallow dof at f/1.9



    Is it just me or is the 3D effect great? This is a superb portrait lens, sorry I do not have any models nearby. :smile:

    This is a tiny bit of cheating. The pics above were taken with my wife's G3 (as is this pic), but the lens is mine, and gonna stay on my E-PM1. Just did not have batteries in it until today. :tongue:

    This is a really small lens, but unfortunately the adapter is about as big as the lens.

    Stunning images! If you don't mind me asking, how were you able to mount it to your camera? What sort of adapter did you use? I've never experimented with buying used film cameras before, but I'd love to start a collection.
