Anybody compare the FT-1 + 50mm/85mm 1.8 G to the Olympus 75mm 1.8?

Haha, dpreview usually has someone asking the same oft-beaten questions I think of! If no one can compare, how does the 50/85 1.8 G lenses do wide open with the FT-1 adapter and V1? Does it require stopping down? My interest is having a small fast telephoto with the V1 while being to shoot wide open (to compensate for the smaller sensor performance).

You're correct. Using FT-1 + F-mount lenses on N1 cameras, you'd most likely need to stop down to get the best sharpness.

Photozone has done some testes on fast primes such as, 35mm f1.8G, 50mm f1.8G & 85mm f1.8G on V1 and on D7000. You can use if as a reference and compare the results.
