SeeRoy: I'm shocked that this lens won't work with my E-M5. OTOH I'm not in the market for newly manufactured antiques so I wouldn't buy it anyway. Happy.
SeeRoy - if you think the fact it is manual focus makes the lens an antique then maybe you have not tried an 0.95 lens on your camera. Very easy to focus, and possibly more accurate than autofocus would be on such a wide aperture lens - in my experience. Jim
samhain: I recently bought the x100 in spite of all the 'camera forum experts' negative commentary about it's poor autofocus and all it's problems... And it was one of the best gear buying decisions I've ever made. The AF is extremely capable(even for fast moving subjects). And the firmware updates just keep improving it. Since acquiring the x100, my dslr's haven't seen the light of day & I'm in no hurry to get the xpro-1. Eventually I'll pick one up. By all reports I've read, the xpro-1's AF is faster than the x100(and will get faster with fw updates). Of course it will be a problem for some, but doesn't make me shy away one bit. As for manual focusing- I wouldn't bother with the Fuji fly-by-wire lenses. I'll just mount Leica, Contax, Zeiss or Pentax FA ltds((43mm & 77mm), end of story. So for me- AF speed: not a problem. Manual focus: not a problem. Image quality, High ISO, size, build & price: definitely not a problem. Looks: better than anything out there(except Leica).
Not sure I follow your logic here. The APS sensor has more depth of field at any given f-stop then FF, which I should have thought in general would be MORE useful for landscape and less useful for portraits.
I think the manual focus problem is more to do with the difficulty of focussing when the lens automatically stops down to a smaller stop than you want to shoot at. Have you tried it at say f8 - almost impossible. The GH2 I have is a joy to focus manually. I'm sure they will sort this out though
