A shout out for OM lenses.

The ones I can definitely recommend are the 28mm F2.8 (mine is sharp centrally from the start and is great across the frame from F5.6), 50mm F1.4 (soft and dreamy at F1.4, very sharp from F2 onwards), the 50mm F3.5 macro (extremely sharp) and the 100mm F2.8 (sharp from the start, great bokeh). These lenses are small and light and great performers on my 5D2. The 100mm F2.8 will cost the most but I got a bargain one which is a bit beaten up but works like charm. I use the Canon Ee-S focusing screen or liveview, depending on the circumstances and lens.
