Has anyone used a Contax G 45mm f2 on a M4/3 ??

I know of course that it would be Manual Focus but the G-to-M43 adaptor is neither very big nor too expensive and the one I see , does work with the lens as Manual (fully) and/or in Av mode . and seems to be fairly helpful so far as having to use the turn of the lens in Manual mode is concerned.

Not exactly a cheap way of using older lenses of course, and for that - in spite of what I'm sure is a superbly good lens.. the main point I suppose is just whether it is worth it to buy this particular lens (plus adaptor) which is then not fuly auto.. but is there an update lens to equal it anyway ?? .. 45mm (=90mm) at f2 is very nice...

and here in UK at least it's barely more than half the price of the Pannie 45mm f2.8
.. and as a Contax T* I bet it's not only cheaper but better....or is it ??
