Nah.

I'm waiting for the Voigtländer 42.5mm f0.95. Until then, my Pentax 50mm f1.4 SMC Takumar will do.

AF is for wimps…

Hehe. I've also got the Voigt on my list.

I've used my Pentax 50mm f/1.2 a bit on the OM-D5. Interestingly, light transmission is increased over the f/1.4...but DOF hardly seems affected. Even the Oly 45mm f/1.8 is very similar DOF-wise...the Pentax has a creamier blur but it doesn't look like less detail is being rendered. Something I'll have to dig into...
