I know this will sound silly. I understand that/ 


I have never liked shooting a fifty, or for that matter a 35. Bleh! however, I 
once owned a contax G system. Great cameras, best 35mm lenses I'v ever used, 
outperforming Nikon, Olympus and Leica, but world class bad AF. Makes molasses 
look fast. But what it did have was a 40mm. Somehow that lens spoke to me. I 
was thrilled using it. And now , I've got a m4/3 panny 20/1.7. It's a nice 
lens, and I'm happy with the older MK 1 version.

Love to see what you create with it.

Not for long. Which reminds me of a terrific margarita I had in San Juan Puerto 
Rico once. It had a round ball of Jalapeno ice. The description said "the more 
it melts, the hotter it gets."
