UPDATE: Re: Is f2.8 enough?

I've spent a little time with the legacy 50mm OM set up and here are my first impressions:

1) I now understand what 'pin-sharp' means, but I also produce more duff images;
2) From (1) I'm learning to adjust the aperture to suit the photo, rather than leaving it wide-open and letting the AF work its magic;
3) Manual focus can be tricky when stopping down so focus, then stop down afterwards (if the scene is static);
4) I'm thinking about the composition more to try and get the most out of a shot.

Thanks to everyone for the help so far. I think I'll come back!
