A reminder for some members as to what collecting lenses is all about.
1

All I know is, if I compare a f/1.8 50mm Canon FD lens with a 50mm f/1.8 m4/3 lens, even with the adapter for m4/3 on the Canon lens it's a lot cheaper than the native m4/3.   That's what you gain when you use the bigger lenses.

And having learned both electronics and photography around age 13, I know the f-stop is a resistance measurement, not voltage or current.

It ain't easy being me, but someone's gotta do it.
