I think manual M lenses are the best option and I have moved the same direction.

The Heliar 15mm is a fantastic lens but be sure to buy the screw mount version, not only is it cheaper but it is also smaller and focuses closer (30cm vs 50cm). It is a fantastic lens though and does not have any problems on the GXR:


Fantastic church pic, love the light, thanks.

I just put the 15mm Heliar on my shopping list. You prefer the 15mm in screw mount, but do you not miss the mountig thread for filters?

I don't really use filters so this for me is not really an issue but the size difference between the M and screw mount version is enough to make the screw mount more desirable, plus the closer focusing ability did come in handy at times:

In my opinion the screw mount version also looks nicer (I know silly thing to compare but it's true).
