    There are treasures from years back that perform so well...

    Yeah, it suprises me with the beautiful color and its sharpness wide open. :)

    They are all taken wide open? Surprise then... I had this lens and used it in m43 bodies, but wide open the pictures were glowing and soft. I had to stop down a bit and the sharpness became incredible...

    Yeah, they are all taken wide open as I want the isolation. You may want to acquire another copy and see if it exhibits the same softness at wide open. ;)

    I have found that (with my GH2, OM-D, G3, and GX1) that adapted lenses with m4/3's bodies had to be stopped down a bit for best performance.

    The exception was Zeiss and Voigtlander- sharp even wide open.

    The APS-C sensor and maybe the flange distance might affect performance.. but no problems wide open with many lenses on X-Pro1 (and A77 prior).
