Rokkor 55mm 1.7...love the look and feel of this lens...I just don't like it goes from 1.7 straight to 2.8...wish 2.0 was in there.. Looks great on the X-T1
yeah, i always hated that about rokkors and olympus OM lenses. if you feel like modding it, you can actually remove the aperture ring (don't lose that ball bearing!) and file a notch or two into it for an extra click stop or two between f/1.7 and f/2.8.
i just got a jupiter-9 (terrible build but beautiful painterly look):
and i've been missing the unique look and small size of the olympus pen f 42/1.2 that i sold recently, so i picked up a beater copy to use for portraits and funky stuff. unfortunately, it has a bit of fungus growing around the edges i'll have to see if i can take care of:
it does a much better job of simulating the petzval look on my a7 than the recent lens designed to be a fake petzval :
