I've always wanted an F1.2 lens, now I have one
5

It is a legacy Canon 55mm FD F1.2 lens. I ordered it from a seller in Japan and it arrived today. I put my FD - M4/3 adapter on it and mounted it on my Olympus PEN E-PL1 and took a couple of shots to see if it worked. These are in A mode and manual focus of course (not easy to do as I was holding the camera with my right hand and twisting the focus ring with my left. That resulted in my right hand pressing to video button and taking 3 short clips before I realized what was happening and shut the video off). However, I am happy to see it works pretty well for an old timer.
