I know, lame test shots. I'll post some better ones up within the next few days.

Wow...I will have to concur with you on this one. I take it that you need an adapter to use these Olys?

Zuiko 50mm f/1.2 was $430 and the Zuiko 21mm f/3.5 was $400. Both were purchased from KEH and were EX condition with caps. I got the 50mm a few months ago for an OM-4 (which I later returned).

Yeah, I'm using an adapter from Fotodiox.

The "pro" or standard?

Nice shots with that lens. It seems you have a real fetish for 50mm primes. :);)

Awesome!

I've been scrounging Zuikos whenever I see them cheap for the past few years, but I kick myself for getting rid of my glass the last time I switched from Olympus.

Never had the 21 though- that looks really, really nice!

Pro. I don't think they have a standard version of the OM adapter.

No? http://www.amazon.com …non-Adapter/dp/B001G4NBNC (external link)

Reviews aren't so hot though, I will probably end up getting the Pro version.

50mm f/1.2 isn't the sharpest, the 50mm f/1.2L is definitely sharper and the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 edges it out. But, the bokeh is extremely creamy. Probably creamier than the Sigma 50mm f/1.4.

Have you tried the 50/1.2 for video in low light? Might be pretty....

Not yet, just got the adapter today along with the 21mm f/3.5. I'll probably test it out tomorrow.

Got it from KEH. They still have one in stock along with the 21mm f/2.

Thanks! I assume you had to buy your own adapter right?
