Description
One of the later high-end om zuikos with ED glass.
Excellent quality and really solid feel with E-1. It feels like it was made for E-1.
Prices at ebay range from 400€ to 600€.

Pros
Excellent image quality even at wide open (focus has to be spot on).
Focusing as close as 0.70m.
F2 provides bright viewfinder image for focusing and composing.
Feel and looks.
Built-in lens hood.
Because of great feel easily handheld.
Smooth bokeh.

Cons
Normal legacy lens cons: manual focus, 4/rds adapter, etc..
Slight CA, but only in severe lighting conditions.

All these images were taken wide open at f2.0

Wow. The iq is stunning (as is your ability to focus manually that fast). Wish i could afford one

Here´s what this excellent lens can do with full frame body, in this case 1ds (hope you don´t mind).

Shot wide open. 100% crop on the right.

It would be nice to see what I could do with my old Zuiko 90mm F2 on an E3 body. :D
