I was talking about the f2 50mm macro.

And yes these lenses are soft in the center wide open and trying to MF on a 4/3 camera is no fun, esp in low light. The OP sounds good on the surface but in use it doesn't pan out. I tried the OM 50 f1.8 and was disappointed when used wide open. The nikon optics of that vintage aren't much, if any better.
