at any rate, if you've been spending full boat for native m43 lenses, by all means don't let your significant other see my original post!

this thread was bound to separate the rams from the sheep.

Let's face it, someone who learned in the film era is not intimidated by manual focus, and MF with the VF-2 and magnified view is a dream compared to entry level dingy dSLR viewfinders.

Those folks find legacy glass to be like finding money on the sidewalk.

But if AF is all you know, legacy glass is going to be terrifying and you can't expect people like that to admit to their fears/lack of skills rather than make excuses as to why legacy lenses are bad, expesive useless, etc.
