You should look at the 50/2 Macro. It's been rated as the sharpest 50mm Zuiko several times by major trade pubs. It also beat the Leica 50/2 Summicron, no small feat. I love mine.

'morning OM members, i've posted a few times about the 50mm/3.5 olympus macro, and how much i like the lens. but, i am trying to find a faster 50mm for travel and available light photography. (by the time the 50/3.5 is stopped down 1 stop for sharpness, you're at f/5.6..... fairly slow, and not a lot of D.O.F. options.....

anyway, i've pretty much relegated myself to a life of 40/2-less isolation, and i wasn't happy with the clean 50/1.4 MC i owned. so, my search is for the following: the 50/1.8 or 50/1.2...(MC examples.) or is the 55/1.2 a viable alternative?

i would appreciate any opinions, and actual uses/ results from people who have experience with either. i know there is a test site with a wealth of great information, but that's not what i am looking for. it would be great if the 50/1.8 was all that was needed, but if the 50/1.2 is that much better, that would be interesting to know as well.

maybe the place to start is with the 50/1.8. so, if anyone has a good, affordable sample of a late, MC 50/1.8 they would like to part with, please let me know off list.

and if anyone has a 50/1.2 they're interested in parting with, i've got a few lenses, and bodies that i could possibly trade as well.. (35/2, -2n black, -2sp.) $$$ can work as payment as well.

any ideas on the above subject would be appreciated.

james.
