I am thinking about put it on ebay. It's overlap with my other lens. But somehow I feel reluctant let it go.

...not a lot of fine detail (even within the DOF) to tell how sharp it is, not to mention the photo is downsized, anyway (even the 1600 x 2400 original size is only 3.84 MP).

But, the quality of the blur looks very nice, and it is a cool pic. Thing is, it is a manual focus lens, and not many are into such lenses.

Lol. That couldn't be further from the truth!! Try shopping for a good mf lens and let me know how cheap they are because, "nobody is into such lenses". Lmao. This generation of photo enthusiast kids are so funny.

Well, for sure, some manual focus lenses, like the Zeiss Otus 55 / 1.4 and Zeiss 100 / 2 makro, are very expensive. But I still maintain that, as I said, "not many are into such lenses".

On the other hand, it does seem that a portion of the mFT crowd is rather fond of older lenses, AF or not, but they often discuss how little the lenses cost.  Of course, I'm not talking about lenses like the Zeiss lenses I mentioned above.
