    Nice shots, I like the fountain.

    But did they make a 1.5? I am only aware of the 3.5Macro, 2.0Macro, 1.8, 1.4, 1.2?

    I recently got a copy of this lens for a song, the "made in japan" version too. I took it to the trail at Russian Ridge on skyline, with a Marumi Polarizer in front, using my A7. The lens can do landscape very well. The compact size, high IQ, and still cheap price makes it an excellent choice for an adapted 50mm.

    Beautiful shots, Brian. That was one of my favorite places when I lived in the South Bay. You brought back some fond memories.

    Yes! Happy Birthday? But what a bummer to have been born so close to Christmas. When you were a kid, did everyone tell you: "This is for your birthday AND Christmas" when giving you presents?

    Yes, but, there were 2 perks to this...
    1. The present was usually pretty damn good as it was double!
    2. I got to have an 'extra' Summer party with my school friends as you could never round them all up over the Xmas holidays for a party!

    I actually quite like having it this time of year as a result :)

    Proving to be a marvellous landscape lens. Credits more to the photographer ('s eys, to be precise). Fantastic shots.:clap2:

    +1 Great detail in that portrait! The photo samples here convinced me to seek out Zuiko glass and it was my first nifty fifty. Picking up quite a few lenses and neglected to shoot with this gem of a lens. Been testing Konicas and forgot just how nice the little Olympus is. Here are two from Thursday at f/5.6.
