There are several versions. They are famous for bokeh, 8 BLADES ones have even better bokeh. Mine is pentax super-takumar 50mm f1.4, 6 blades. SMC takumar is even better because of better lens coating. Mine is the cheapest version. Others will cost more. Don't buy the one that is yellowed too much.

Buy 12-50. Then buy Canon fd 50mm f1.8 (or other manual focus 50mm) and an adaptor to M4/3.

I have many FD lenses this is a great idea,

I have Pentax Super-Turk 50mm f1.4. It's really nice lens. I got it for about $60, now it's about $100.

Thanks for the lens info.

This sounds like a stupid question but I can't find old M4/3 lenses when I do broad searches. I can only find ones recommended by name.
