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

I think that the OP would be better off with the Sigma 30mm f2.8. Better antifreflective coatings than what we had in the 1980's. Also less weight and bulk. More expensive than a legacy 28mm f2.8 and adapter, but it's money better spent, in my opinion as most 28mm's aren't any better than the 14-42's shipped with M43 cameras. They go for $199 USD in America, so should be comparable in NZ/AU

Only drawback is that it's autofocus and will take a spot-on shot in 1/2 second, so the OP will never learn the joy of manual focus on moving subjects.
