Legacy 35 F2 ish focal length - suggestions?
Jan 27, 2012

I have a GF1 I really love -

I use the 20 mm Panasonic, 45mm 2.8 PanaLeica, and also an SMC Takumar 50 1.4 legacy lens. I am finding the 50mm a little long for my intended use: Portraits.

The 45 is also a tad long -

A 35 mm focal length sounds just right, and I am wondering if anyone out here might have suggestions for a legacy fast lens (so, roughly a 75 mm on Micro).

I am looking for sharp central image, and great bokeh - F2 or smaller - hopefully $400 or less (so, Leica lenses out of range, perhaps Contax too) - I convert my images to BW, so stellar color is not of primary concern -

I know this community really knows their stuff regarding these lenses - so if anyone currently is having success with a certain brand or model that I can use with an adapter, I would really appreciate any feedback or suggestions -

Thanks!

Steve
