Re: Good retro film lens to add to 4/3 GF2

Thanks everyone for the feedback.

Liking the idea of the Pentax smc 50mm or maybe still the canon 50mm 1.4. Id like to get the 20mm panasonic and heard a lot of good reviews but its quite a bit more than i was hoping to spend and the 14mm was almost free with the kit do have that already. The Leica mounted lens looks amazing although the price is high too..

Would you guys recommend the 50mm faster lens for me or the 35mm slight slower but not as long lens?

Also appreciate the advice about the manual focusing. Although it sounds like it could be quite hard to get used to, I'm actually really looking forward to playing around with it, so sure even if it doesn't work for as many shots as i like it too I'll no doubt learn a lot and have a lot of fun in the process. I'll still have my 14mm and 14-42mm lens with me so can use those anytime (maybe on the lazier / hung over days)

Thanks,
Nick
