OM 50mm f/1.4

Bored this afternoon, I put this lens on my E-M1 wide open at f/1.4 and had a wander around the garden.

This is the result:


I found that I could use focus peaking and magnify at the same time. I wish that these features had been available on the OM-1N!

Thanks for looking.

Re: OM 50mm f/1.4

Very nice. Perhaps I need to dust my one off as well. I keep the x2 on it as 100mm F2.8 seems a useful lens to have around and much better than the F5.1 of the 70-200mm at 100mm, (that us until I go mad and buy the 40-150mm Pro).

P.S I really meant to say dust of my 50mm/F1.2 (so 100mm at F2.4 with the x2)
