Great shots - lovely little lens.

Thanks! It is a bit larger than the other Pen F standard lenses, but not huge given the aperture. It is a fun lens to use anyway.


The bokeh on the contax 45 is even worse, but you don't hear that lens dismissed the way this one is. You really show how spectacular it is. At f/8 it is landscape quality sharp--not a given for superspeed.

It's one of the best legacy lenses, bar none, which you can put on the camera.

263 grams!
only 15.000 made--a good copy is well worth the 600USD they usually bring.
