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

The Canon FD 50mm f1.4 is an excellent lens. However it is quite long (going into tele range) on m43... I use it as short tele and portrait lens, but it is not good for street due to it's limited FoV. For that I use the Panasonic 20mm pancake, though I am considering getting the 14mm pancake also. On a camera such as the GF2 or my PEN it becomes so discrete that no one notices you shoot pictures of them, giving much better street shots.
