New 45mm f/2.8 pancake

My first post on here was about primes, and I was thinking, y'know it would be perfect if I had a 45mm f/2.8, but there is no way I can justify the price of the panaleica, so gave up on the idea, until now, on my shelf staring at me as it has done for the last year is this, it was attached to my mint chrome nikon fe, so, adapter ordered and job sorted.

That's one beautiful lens. I'd be really interested in the image quality wide open. if you ever find yourself in Amsterdam, we can compare it with my overpriced Panasonic Leica 45mm macro.

I have the odd weekend in 'dam, ;-). Will post some pics when I have some to show. I am quite excited, cannot believe it has been staring me in the face all this time, I used it with interesting results on my canon apsc a while back.
