New Zuiko 50mm f/1.8

Hi,

I just bought a Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 and an adapter OM/43, to use indoor with my E-420. Wide open, the manual focus is less difficult than I thought, when shooting not too mobile subjects like my 6 month old son, or my cats. Roughly 2/3 of the shots were enough in focus to keep them. The wide aperture makes possible to shot indoor at 400 ISO and gives a nice background separation.

At that cost (less than 35€ with the adapter), I wonder why I didn't buy one before

Here are a few photos - the other ones from my first 24 hours with it are available at http://glehmann.smugmug.com/Public/24h-avec-le-Zuiko-OM-50mm-f18/
They are all shot wide open. EXIF should be intact.
