I have had excellent results from the basic and older model E-PL1 with Zeiss Sonnar 5cm/1.5 as a portrait lens. The colors are amazingly beautiful and natural looking.

Happy New Year, Kent!
I agree with you on using vintage lenses on M 4/3 systems. I find that adapting vintage lenses works only with tele crops in the end. I am reluctant to spend a lot of money on a...

OK, so it is not really a matter of avoiding M 4/3. I will think about it more. I must make sure that I actually would "respect" a new M 4/3 as much as my older M8 and M9.

The Canon FD 17/4 may work well here. It would be a slow 34mm lens then. It is not light or small.

I have a silver 90/2 Summicron with built-in hood (Made in Canada), and I love using this (heavy) lens!
The digital cameras are spoiling us, Peter. My SWC "reminds me" to also use film.

Thank you for your assessment, Jim. I am currently using a loaner M240, and I like it, but it is big and heavy when compared with the M8 or M9. This is at least what I feel. Maybe I am wrong. The M...

Thank you, Robert! Thanks to Simo for modeling for you!
Yes, the Pen-F is beautiful indeed. It may be the main reason why I was attracted to buying it (maybe).

The posted image looks good.

The SWC is currently my favorite pick for photography. I use a 120 and a 220 back. It keeps everything simple and basic. There is one lens only. Hardly any need to focus. See things as squares.
