Both are nice lenses on a Panasonic camera, but not on an Olympus camera : plagued with huge CA!

I really wanted to like those lenses on the OM-D, but I didn't succeded! On the GH2, they are very nice, especially the 14mm.

Have a look at this link: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51767857

Anders W has figured out the cause of, and a solution to the people fringing problem many have noticed when using the 20mm on an OMD.

I'm looking forward to getting the necessary filter and banishing the problem, once and for all.

Maybe a problem on the OMD but on the PENS? The 14 worked fine with my EPL1.

You may be right. On my E-P1 I didn't care about CA produced by the 14mm and the 20mm, which was present but not bothersome. As AndersW wrote in the link above, it could be that EM-5 uses a significantly weaker on-sensor UV filter.

Anyway, on the EM-5, those two lenses and the Pany 14-45 produce CA above my level of tolerence. The filter solution could solve that, let's see.
