Re: Is it mid life crisis

I can't remember the details precisely, however I recollect the u43 sensor stack has some depth compared to the relatively thin film, meaning old film camera lenses are not at their best on u43. Others will have a different opinion I'm sure.
I played round with the OM 50mm on the OMD, and yeah it was ok, but not worth the effort. I paid 25 and sold for the same money, but lost on the converter.

The Voigtlander lenses designed for u43 should perform better, but focusing will require more effort compared to the native fly-by-wire designed for the u43 system.
