I own the 50 f1.8 and 24 f2.

the 50 was a steal at $30 (some dust, not visible). its really sharp and produces just wonderful images. Focus peaking works great with this lens.

the 24 is impressive, still pretty compact, still sharp. i just love the field of view + shallow DOF. however, even with focus peaking, this thing is very tricky to focus wide open. the peaking doesnt isolate the actual focus plane quite correctly, I always have to zoom to doublecheck. anyone else experience this?

i just wish the OM adapter were smaller as the lenses are so compact.
