Anyone Own One Of These? Xiaoyi 42.5mm F1.8 ( Test Shot Included)

Hi everyone.

Well I did mention an expensive purchase didnt I!
This Xiaoyi 42.5mm F1.8 set me back a whopping 88.75 including postage!
It is an ex-demo and in like new condition supplied with both end caps / filter & lens hood. I will try and do an impressions post on this lens as soon as possible but for now I can show you what it looks like at least!
I have enclosed some very rudimentary sample shots showing standard close focus and 'macro' close focus. Please note in 'macro' mode it automatically switches to F3.5 minimum aperture.
Best Regards

This is a very harsh first test for the lens , bad subject & poor light etc so I will upload some better ones to give you a fairer idea of how the lens performs very soon.

A few more; rubbish lighting & boring subjects!
Test Notes iso400 E-M1 shq sooc jpegs

Initial impressions. Its pretty nice by the looks of things although things dont appear to be so rosy when focusing at minimum distance & in macro settings although a thorough test may prove otherwise!
