Nightpiper, Round and earthly colors - seems a little different from the Zuiko lenses.
BTW, is that a monkey or a small panda.

Round means not edgy, sharp, and is soothing, etc
I saw your handphone pics on the other forum - can you let me help you to take a nicer set?:devil:

Although I don't understand all the techie stuff, but I am amazed at the Low CA characteristic of this lens. Is this a Leica trade secret? Also, the portraits certainly have a quality look compared to non-portraits(not your technique but how the overall turns out - there is certain naturalness to the contours and colors - hope you know what I mean)

yes, i agree with u serene. the colours & sharpness the Leica lens produce is different. its like softness within hardness. very interesting, never encounter a lens like this before. :D

u can take pics of my cam combo anytime, juz let me know when. :) will be good to replace those crappy phone pics.

Don't tell me you got yourself an E-500? Now you can see the detail resolving power of that 8MP Kodak sensor!

The 90mmf2 and f2.8 should not show any difference, just the f stop. If you are referring to the APO ROM version, it will be the sharpest lens in the Leica stable, but too contrasty for portraits, just like the current Oly 50mmf2 (can only be used in non-contrasty situations).

We can always meet up. I have not yet received the adapter. Should be arriving next week. BTW, do you use soft focus filters? Thinking of putting one on. Not sure which is a good one.
