I just got that lens for my E-PM1 body. Its jjust damn ! Crazy !! (well I´ve just upgraded from an Olympus XZ-1 compact !)

I used to use F1.8 lens on XZ-1, (apart from super macros ) the backround blur just unbelieveable. Perfectly seperating the subject, but as I mentioned If its a supermacro in some different conditions with XZ-1 , backround blur is better there.

I was surfiing between 19mm and 30mm...but then I choose 30mm, I still think that I´ll someday will buy a lens that would cover 8-25 mm (16-50mm for full frame) hence I go for 30 mm (60 mm equv.)

Thanks to check

Ben
