I had this lens with my EP1 for about a year. I thought it performed pretty well. It was reasonably sharp, even wide open, though it was a bit better stopped down. For it's FL, it's fairly small and light. I used it for walk-around shooting, but I just didn't use it enough to warrant my keeping it, but for $39, it's worth trying out!

I got it for $39.00 with caps and hood.

Looks new.

has a switch (auto, M) for putting the aperture in stop down mode.

Anybody know anything about when it was made, coatings, etc.?

Waiting for the adapter to arrive.

Tedolph, RIP
