I quite enjoyed reading your impressions of the lens. I was nervous at the layout it took to acquire one, but almost immediately putting some light through it I knew it wasn't a mistake. I love its imperfections that impart it's own character wider open, and its construction also makes it a pleasant experience to handle.  And what it and the OM-D can do in the dark is nothing if not empowering.

I'm not sure I find all the images appropriate for this FOV, though there's a lot to like here - but the first just blows me away. Can't quite describe why it's so engrossing. And it's more than a fortunate opportunity, that's clear.
