It's terrible. I find myself looking for new lenses for my EOS-M, even though I don't like it.

Nice. I don't really have a need for a 27mm f/2.8, but with the X-M1 in my hands now, I'm dying to have a super tiny lens to go along with it. I guess to make me not go spend even more money, I should just go pick up my GX1 with 14/2.5 and reassure myself that I already have a super tiny combo...but having one for Fuji would be good too....I need to resist.

This one won't be that hard to resist. I'm currently stockpiling money for the 56/1.2 and the 55-200...no extra cash for the 27.

Yes.It is the lens with character,better again than it's later MD/MC 35/28 successors.

I woke up this morning and see that my best offer for Rokkor MC SI 28/2.5 was accepted,so now I got two.

Congrats on getting a nice clone to your lens, although I don't see the point, unless you use it everyday in which case it does make sense to have a backup.

Yes.I have both MD Rokkors - 35/2.8 - 55mm and 49mm.Optically they are identical with good/very good IQ.Nice Minolta colours,rather smooth bokeh,pretty even sharpness across the frame,but somehow boring.MC Rokkor HH 35/1.8 has an edge here - it is visibly crisper overall

Thank you.I make backups for lenses I use most often and/or regard special/like very much.Keeping in mind that their availability is decreasing,prices rising and some may get damaged overtime,it makes me feel safer.And it's fun.
