A really good lens in every respect I can think of.

When you finally get so sick of manually focusing your favourite 50mm lens on a m4/3 adapter that you stump up the cash for this, you'll be amazed at the speed of AF and the sharpness right from maximum aperture. The first time I took this lens outside, I was able to capture a sharp photo of two cyclists riding almost directly towards me at dusk.

Its close focus capability is not at all bad at exactly half a meter, but I would love it even more if it focused even closer.

Some people comment adversely at the use of plastic in its construction, but honestly this is a bit of a plus for me since it keeps the weight and price down.

The manual focus ring feels nice (unlike that of my Panasonic 20/1.7) and the mount is well-machined metal.
