My OMD has re-opened the joy and exploration of using some older manual focus lenses. I'm currently using the CANON FD Series 85mm f1.2L, FD 135mm f2.0 and here's a quick test from my newest acquisition, a FD 200mm f2.8 SSC.

This is with the 200mm @ f2.8, handheld at 1/60 second at ISO 1600. It's the entire frame capture ... from about 6 feet. That's a FOV of 400mm in terms of a 35mm full frame.

I'm finding the IBIS on the OMD nothing short of amazing. I'm having more fun than I've had in years. A 400mm f2.8 equivalent for about $150. (FYI - This was focused without the use of the viewfinder's "Zoom" mode.)

with a $139.00 E-pl1 body and some $39.00 SMC takumar lenses

IBIS always has been amazing, even on the E-pl1.
