The fine 50mm 1.8. Although it's duller, I find the OM 1 shot more realistic....or am I just fantacising?

The Zuiko 50mm f1.8 is an underrated lens, perhaps because of the proliferation of 50mm f1.4's which are often regarded as superior because they are faster, but the earlier versions were optically suspect. The 1.8 comes out better here, but I think you need to give more information. The 1.8 looks to have been shot wide open (and has nice bokeh) whereas the f2 looks stopped down. To be really frank, I don't think either photo does complete justice to the optics, and maybe this has something to do with the scan/conversions involved
