Incomparable m43 Prime
Jul 31, 2014

This is the first version.  Used on my Olympus EPL-1, IMO the image quality and 'look' are reminiscent of 35mm and 50mm Leica Summicrons and the Leica/Leitz-Minolta 40mm primes for the old CL.   It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Leica had a hand behind the scenes in designing this lens.  Detractors do cite its admittedly slow AF; but, for me, not much of a trade off for the stunning street shots of which it is capable.
