Re: Better than M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8?

Can the 45mm 1.8 even grab focus with a shot like this? It was so dark that this was a 50 second exposure. This kind of shot is WAY easier with a manual focus lens, especially when you can use f/1.4 to focus. In fact, any kind of manual focus shot is a genuine pain-in-the-butt with autofocus lenses.

This is a shot that would have benefited from using a wider angle lens. I don't like the telephoto compression of the background. Unless there was something ugly outside of the frame you were trying to crop out?

Also, you can manual focus any native m43 lens.
