Surprised me. I love mine.

Really surprised me. My results differ.

Fuji 55/1.8 is great IQ but funky colors in skin tones
Original or EBC? The EBC Fujinon 55/1.8 was my first SLR lens ever, and I always liked what I got from it. I don't remember funky colors (Kodachrome was the film), but I'd have to go back and look.

tldr: Experiment, copy variation is prevalent, and trying new stuff is half the fun of the old glass.
Yep, yep, and yep.
