I waited with baited breath for this lens because of its compactness, but the shutter shock was so bad on my E-P2 that I returned it. Everyone reports it works much better on the OMD.

It's just good enough resolution-wise, and suffers from fairly considerable but fairly correctable CA. But as you see from Ming's shots, it's often good enough. Do remember that Ming is very much a professional photographer, though. Most working pros make fairly ordinary zooms look pretty good - as they in reality are these days. It's just hard for me to settle for pretty good after having tried stuff like the Pentax DA*16-50 (in my DSLR days) and the 12-35 Panasonic. All up to you.
