PL1 + jupiter 8: why are pictures hazy?
May 26, 2010

I just got myself a jupiter 8 50mm f/2 for my E-PL1. It is really great to be able to shoot at F2 at 100mm effective!
However, my images seem a bit hazy, or whitish, when compared to the kit lenses.

Here are two images, one shot with the jupiter, the other with the 14-45 kit lens. You can see that the jupiter is more hazy. The question is why is this so? Do I have a bad lens? are they all like this? do I need to clean it? do I need a lens hood?

Thanks!
