    Thought I'd try this old metal lump of a lens out on my EM-1 at Marwell Zoo today - considering it cost me £8, it's not too bad really! Some pretty horrible CA wide open, but seems to improve a lot stopped down to F8, and is pretty much all gone by F11.

    Excursion out of the house #2. Local Zoo. Somebody was kind enough to distract the kids so I could faff about with the lens (thanks wife...)

    What good is a long neck if you can't use it to steal food from mum?

    This is almost at minimum focusing distance for this lens (8 metres), and that's a decent sized tortoise.

    Sad looking rhino.
