    Yeah, i guess i'm lucky got this lens. But i saw on ebay there's also the 15 blades edition. 12 blades already produce an unique bokeh, i wonder what it's looks like if 15 blades's bokeh :rolleyes:

    Don't you think the lens is rather ... soft? Or even blury. Why would you prefer it over Zuiko 45mm?

    Yes this lens is soft. I think it's 3 or 4 elements. Considering it's an old lenses, at his time this lens were categorized a very sharp lens and has a nickname "Eagle's Eyes".

    Very different than now days's lenses who has about 6 till 9 elements.

    What makes me prefer this over 45mm maybe because the number of blades. Old lenses usually has an insane blades. Normal blades in now days lenses only 6 to 8 blades. Old lenses has 12 (like my lens) till 20 blades (Tair 100mm f2.8 has it). It produces a very beautiful bokeh, an unique one (can do swirly bokeh too depend on the situation).

    1960's 'zebra' version. Not as sharp as the M-Zuiko 45mm, but it's hardly a soft lens ... wall_tessar.




    Something prettier

    Wide open it is a bit soft (sharpens up a lot at f4) but wide-open you do get an interesting/distracting bokeh...
