  1. That's one fine lens indeed. Sharp, with nice sharpness falloff. The bokeh seems nice to me too. A worthy addition to the arsenal!

    1. It is indeed a worthy addition !! Cheap, and very good optics.

  2. One more year, and we will see Robin jump ship to Sony Full Frame...

  3. Yep, it's a real gem, I quite enjoyed mine while I had it (it got sold on over the summer along with the rest of my DT lenses). So's the 85/2.8 SAM (and the 85 is a full-frame lens).

    1. Aaahhhh 85mm F2.8.... at this rate I think the Olympus might just get neglected !!

  4. Brilliant and warm, but then again, I could use those same words for the photographer.

  6. Robin, I completely agree with you: it's the single reason that I'm using Sony Alpha system now.
    I had Olympus before (since E500) with great lenses (ZD12-60mm and ZD50), but the one
    thing that I felt missing was decent standard prime. I'd switch to m4/3 if
    we could get a similar lens to Sony 35mm DT (and similar price). 20mmF1.7 is
    great, but a bit too wide for me. Leica 25mm F1.4 is perfect - but more expensive.
    Anyway: great blog and keep posting.

    1. Hey Marcin,
      I know right, that Panasonic 25mm is just too ridiculously expensive !! The Sony costs so much less.

  8. Hi Robin,
    I'm a your fan and I'm a newbie in photography. About 1 yr, only this time I'm shooting more often.
    So I still have a LOT to learn I guess. I use Sony A33 and newly bought OMD EM5 (with 12-50 kit).
    I have Sony 50mmDT and used it more often. Probably I have some nice pics but
    I cannot achieve the sharpness of your work. The bokeh is good, the color is good
    but I am lacking some sharpness. I tried to remove the NR, it did sharpen a little but
    trade off is some noise. Can you give me an advice?

    Thanks!
    Rap D
