    Minolta MD 50 1.4

    Just received this lens and like it very much on my GF1. It's a little soft wide open and somewhat low contrast. More in the character of older lenses, which I like.

    Isn't this one of the wonders of m4/3--we can get lenses like a 100mm f1.4 for $60.

    Wonderful portrait!
    I like my Rokkor lenses too.
    The 45/2 costs much less, is really small and is very sharp.
    Didn't think so at first but I like it more and more.

    Thanks, Michael and Keith. I have the 45 also but wanted a little more speed. It's size sure is nice, though. Such amazing bargins.

    I had one for years and sold it just days ago due to redundancy, but would otherwise have kept it with my GF1. Nice oldish lens, nifty size. And practically for free.
