My first impression test was with a Minolta MC Celtic 135mm 1:2.8, the later version (1992-97) with a built-in lens hood. A bit sad though, cause the lens came with a spot of minor fungal infection within its lens elements.

Regrets aside, I was more than surprised at the image quality as captured, tripod mounted, on the Pen E-P5. All shots were taken at 1:2.8. The lens is heavyweight, all-glass, and metal, weighs in at 575 grams, has top-notch mechanical quality, takes 55mm filters, and comes with a minimum focusing distance of 1.5 meters.
