Re: Canon FD f1.8 v. DSLR Magic 1.7 v. Pan 20/1.7 on Oly E-PL2

I've owned all those lenses as well, and still have the 35/1.7, which is AMAZING if used correctly. One of the hidden gems of the m4/3 world...

For FD 1.8 is nice but I prefer the 1.4 personally. Not too ungainly on the E-PL2.

The 20/1.7 is a fine lens, and you'll probably keep that one mounted most of the time. Only sold it to fund the PanaLeica 25/1.4, which I like better optically (especially wide open) but you can't beat the portability of the 20.

I've had maybe 50 different lenses at one time or another on m4/3 cameras, and finally streamlined my setup to the 25mm, Oly 45mm, Fujian 35mm, some Lensbaby stuff and a few custom tilt lenses.

WARNING: Don't try out the E-M5, or you'll probably have to get one
