This would go with a newly purchased EPL1. And if anyone has a 'better' idea, have at it! Thanks.

As a legacy lens, I suggest you the 35mm f2 chrome noise. You will love it and you will not look any more at the 50mm FD.

Otherwise, you might want to have a look at the tests at

These tests indicate that the 50 nFD is better than the 35 nFD...am I reading the grades incorrectly?
