Hi friends just wanted to share with you that i finally received the lens. Here a few observations and images:

- Heavy!!!!! kind of kills the portability of the m43 system.
- Manual focusing is quite hard, more than I expected, lost some nice portraits yesterday. But slowly the next days I was getting the hang of it.
- I bought an ND filter to use the lens wide open on day light. I made the mistake of buying one which is at least 3 stops. Kills to much light and for a walk around lens is not good. Should have gotten something with less stops….
- Quality and build of the lens is magnificent.
- Pictures does have some beauty that i cant explain, maybe its my wallet screaming for mercy after buying this lens.

Not surely i am convinced about the lens, but still need to shoot and shoot....Most of these at 0,95

This was shot at iso6400, 1/40 and 0,95 imagine how dark it was...

Heh. Love the salute, like all from the 3rd on, a lot.
