One of the reasons I came to like m4/3 so much was the fact that I could use non-AF alternative and legacy lenses on the cameras. I started with Nikon lenses and moved on to m-mounts, mainly Zeiss and Voigtlander.

Currently my "best" and sharpest lens is probably the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2 Nokton (Version II) and I tried it on the OM-D both indoors and out.

The results were nice and sharp and I was able to get very "punchy" colours. The changes to how I manually focused on the OM-D, after using the Pens, was a great improvement involving a lot less fiddling with buttons. A good start for what I'm sure will be many MF adventures.
