Yes, as soon as I get to a computer I will post some images of it attached to the EM5! At first I was thinking of selling the lens because of the info I was reading on the web about soft focussing but this lens was pretty sharp and I even have the highly regarded Olympus 75mm 1.8 lens!!! So the Pentacon was a little heavy but I find myself holding the lens instead of the camera which steadies the image! Keep in mind, it takes lots of practice and patience to manual focus a super telephoto focal length! I tried shoot wide open despite the sunlight! I was doing around F4.0 but shot many images at a wider aperture! This is a fast lens and I may need to get a neutral density filter! You can't complain though since the lens only set me back $120!!
