There are a few variations of the Vivitar 24/2.8, but my copy below...

Nic, those are all great choices to show the greatness of that lens, but let's not forget it is your vision behind it all. Thank goodness one can click on your images to see them larger. The first and third, in particular and in my not so humble opinion, are crying out to be seen big! Love the tones in that first image, especially...and then the color in your last one is, well to me, absolutely magnificent. I also like the simplicity of that image very much.

P.S. Andy have you used this lens on your E-PL2 yet? I can't remember.

Nic....What can i say!! Superb images not just in image quality but all other factors too!

As good as this lens is i may still get the Carl Zeiss 24mm f/1.7 when it comes out as it has AF. Then again it also depends on how much it's going to cost!

Thanks, BB. Sorry, I realise this thread is in the NEX forum but I don't have one of those lying around right now! The Canon shots give about the same field of view as a NEX. To me the Viv 24/2.8 performs well above it's station as a third-party lens. Not exactly as sharp as my Canon nFD 24/2.8 but it seems to produce more vibrant colours and smoother and more pleasant looking out-of-focus areas.

Hey, Andy. Thank you! The imminent Panasonic 25mm for m4/3 seems like it won't be cheap either so my Vivitar will most likely be in use for a while yet.

Is your Vivitar the same version as mine? This one is an OM mount
