I forgot how much fun a 24mm f1.4 could be

Okay, I have just moved from M43s to Sony. I used to have a Canon 24mm f1.4L some years ago, before I moved to Olympus. The 24mm offers great opportunities to achieve a cinematic effect, especially when shooting amongst the action. The Sony version does not disappoint. I have only had this lens for a week or so, but it really is a blast. The fast aperture provides creative opportunities that cannot be achieved with longer focal lengths.

As far as handling goes the Sony is reasonably light, it offers a button, which I have set to eye focus. The focus ring is firm and buttery and the aperture ring offer nice resistance. The lens seems to be very sharp and quick to focus. Overall, a very nice addition to my kit.
