Thank you for the suggestion. I do have the LA EA4 but your experience with the. Metabones adaptor on this lens interests me. Does the IS function work on this combination? not so critical at 24mm but would be of interest for longer lenses.

Consistently sharp shots as 1/3 seconds shutter speed (and I can go slower and still have good hit rates), hand held. Yes, I'd say it works like a charm!

Opting for this combo obviously has the drawback of slowr AF, which is not too relevant in most cases for me, but it has HUGE benefit of now opening up another line of lenses for you. Canon has a number of GREAT lenses that may interest you.

As the pioter above stated, the 35mm f2 IS USM is great as well. I would pick it over the 35mm FE - better lens all around and rivals that on the RX1, and the Sigma 35mm, with the benefits of IS. The 28mm f2.8 IS USM is the smaller of the three stabilized primes and also a real great lens.
