    This is an interesting lens.. When you can find them, they aren't expensive. Mine was found on FleaBay for $50 and apparently, they are difficult to come by? As well, the very few comments on the various websites are a "mixed - bag"? Some love it - others claim it's soft? Maybe I just got a good sample.

    These were taken this morning (14/06/2014) with my NEX 7 and the new Metabones Speed Booster. With the metabones attached, I'm guessing this lens is about 30mm - 50mm, and a perfect walk around lens. It is also very compact and very light. I would have tried this on my Sony A7R - but, my A7R is at the Sony repair facility having a "face lift", so I'll try to update this thread with some from that system when it comes back....

    One commentary note is that Olympus Zuiko lenses are renowned for their color rendition. Matched to a Sony sensor - I couldn't agree more! I prefer the OM lenses I have over all the Nikkor lenses in my "stash" (which is pretty extensive)...
