Is there such a thing as a legacy super-wide useable on m43?
Oct 23, 2011

I toyed with a legacy 50mm f1.8 for a while, but found it very long and that I took too long focussing and fiddling when taking pictures. This wasn't great for my subject, especially when I prefer my portraits not to be posed; smiles quickly get strained when they're waiting...

ANYWAY, landscapes don't pose. Generally they give you all the time in the world to fiddle. They don't move if you need to take a longer exposure because of low light...

....so I was thinking, of all the lenses I do and will use, one for super-wide land- and city-scapes will be the one I'll most tolerate being manual-focus!

Is there ANY legacy glass which has a short enough focal length to be super-wide (below 12mm, I already have a 14mm) on m43?
