Keeping in mind subject and occasion -- which one of those could you have not taken with a legacy manual focus 50/1.4 lens?

Which cost $50-60 used as opposed to the "cheap" $400 lens you use?

Sorry, but this is just stupid.

Stupid?  If you want AF?  And a small lens that is sharp wide open with no halation? That you don't have to use an adapter for?

And, in case you hadn't noticed, higher quality legacy manual focus 50mm f1.4 lenses are closer to $200 than to $50.....

I mean, I love my 50mm f1.7 Yashica, but there really are times the 45mm f1.8 is a far better choice to use.....Just because YOU don't want any of the advantages of the Oly lens does not mean that everyone else doesn't.
