Thanks Richard. That's an interesting read. Maybe I will put it back in the cupboard until I next get the urge to clean up! I have one brother above the P&S level but he shoots Pentax so I don't think I will upset anyone by parting with it! Difficult to get the benefit of long range/wide aperture without a tripod, but the lens feels too heavy without support on my GH2 so I haven't given it a real good try-out.

I'd move it on if it was actually useful to anyone, but if not it can go back in the drawer...

Would be a good lens for video use, as you don't need a fancy camera body to retain almost all lens controls, aperture, focus, zoom etc. entirely manually. A good thing to have is an adapter with tripod mount for better stability and less stress on the camera.

This lens will be more compatible with cameras of the future than our native M43 lenses, once M43 dies.
