For the implausibly attractive price, it seems such a good optical performer. Is there any downside at all (colour clash aside) to using it on the Panasonic bodies?

It is by far my favorite lens on the OM-D -- fast, sharp and a fun FL! The only downside I can think of on a Panny body would be the lack of IS.

To be honest. I seldom notice that the Panny don't has IBIS. It is not a cure for lousy technique and at lower speeds i use a tripod, so i have less high iso problems.

I really think that with normal shutter speeds that OIS/IBIS switched off gives sharper results.
