Portraits and no AF or peaking is many failures.

I have an adapted Canon1.4 FD at 70 euro's. Very nice. But in crowds you miss so many shots, it ain't funny. And at f1.4 it is super soft (internal reflections are the cause). You need to go to f2 and it is really sharp at f4 or so.
Oly lenses tend to be sharp wide open.

Anyway: AF is essential to me and I happily pay 400 dollar for that lens if it provides good overall performance. A good to excellent lens comes at a price. Lets hope it delivers. Because I rather pay 400 dollars for a lens that actually gives me a lot keepers instead of a lens that gives me a good casual portrait every once in while.
