    The SMC Pentax M50/f1.4 shot with the SMC Pentax K24/f2.8 on the Panasonic GH2 with a Fotodiox PK-m43 adapter. This was shot natively at 16:9.

    The K24 has been consistently blowing me away on the GH2, really sharp, even at f2.8!

    Tell me about the K24, that sounds like an odd focal length ... not a 28 ...

    24mm is not that unusual. I have a Minolta 24mm F2.8.

    Nikon and Canon have a 24mm as well. Fairly common FL.

    As the others have mentioned, 24mm was a pretty common 135 format focal length. Most of the manual Pentax series (K, M, A) had a budget 28mm option, and then a higher-end 24mm, usually there'd also be an f2.8 and f3.5 version of both. The K-24 was from Pentax's first K-mount series.
