The problem is M mount lenses are expensive due to the presence of Leica digital rangefinders, and Russian lenses, particularly copies of Zeiss lenses are fairly overrated in comparison to their non-Russian copies.

The benefit you get with FD lenses is that they're all sharp, and due to the image circle of Micro Four Thirds you're getting the best part of the lens, the centre of it.

I am more interested in focal reducers due to the fact that you can maximize the affective aperture.

You can also look at Olympus OM mount lenses, Minolta MD, and Konica AR lenses which are all cheap, sharp, and relatively fast.

Looks like I have more options to explore !

I had searched ebay and Konica AR 52mm F1.8 with an "excellent" condition is selling for peanuts !
