Eventually got a 2nd hand 50mm F2 ED macro from over on FTU...I used to say the Zuiko 50mm f1.8 weas good and that the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 was better...how wrong I was!!!...
So a few from the first walk around the garden...nowt special...

So at risk to my solvency and marriage...which other lenses match this IQ?

Oh yes, it is something special innit! Wouldn't it be great if they brought out a SWD version, so it was fast as well as sharp.

As to which other lenses match that one, I really don't know, but they will be out of my league..

Yes ...it does sound like a Pentax autofocus lens from 20+ years ago...but the IQ :cool:

The 35mm macro is still pretty good for those of us on a slightly lighter budget.
