Re: Olympus Pen F 40mm 1.4 comments

I used to have the Sony 35mm 1.8 on when I had an A35.  Great lens and was on par with the Nikon 35mm.  It still had to be stopped down a hair if you wanted to avoid purple around highlights.  If I was to get an autofocus lens, I would be more inclined to get the Alpha 35 1.8 again with a LEA adapter so I can use autofocus.  At this point, I'd pay the extra money and get the SEL 35 instead of being saddled with the bulk.  Most autofocus lenses are not very easy to manual focus.

Only reason I am looking at PEN lenses is because they are smaller and use smaller adapters.  I realize the coatings on these are not as good as modern lenses but this will probably be used in conditions that minimize flare.
