That's one fine lens indeed. Sharp, with nice sharpness falloff. The bokeh seems nice to me too. A worthy addition to the arsenal!
It is indeed a worthy addition !! Cheap, and very good optics.
One more year, and we will see Robin jump ship to Sony Full Frame...
Maybe, maybe not !! We shall see
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).
Aaahhhh 85mm F2.8.... at this rate I think the Olympus might just get neglected !!
Brilliant and warm, but then again, I could use those same words for the photographer.
Thanks Rev! Now I am feeling bright and warm already !
Razor sharp! You must have been very near to the subject!
Yes Johan, I was very near indeed.
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 onething that I felt missing was decent standard prime. I'd switch to m4/3 ifwe could get a similar lens to Sony 35mm DT (and similar price). 20mmF1.7 isgreat, but a bit too wide for me. Leica 25mm F1.4 is perfect - but more expensive.Anyway: great blog and keep posting.
Hey Marcin,I know right, that Panasonic 25mm is just too ridiculously expensive !! The Sony costs so much less.

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 butI cannot achieve the sharpness of your work. The bokeh is good, the color is goodbut I am lacking some sharpness. I tried to remove the NR, it did sharpen a little buttrade off is some noise. Can you give me an advice?Thanks!Rap D
