Mine was scheduled to arrive Friday, but it was delivered today.

First impressions: solid lens, fast and quiet AF, manual focus ring is large and smooth.

Image quality is terrific. No complaints about the lens.

This photo was taken with the 25mm lens.

The 25mm lens on my E-M5 - just like the good old days... almost.

Funny thing - the 25mm lens came with a lens hood that doesn't seem to mount on the lens. I don't see any bayonet-type fittings on the end of the lens. This hood does mount on my Oly 60mm 2.8 lens, though. Go figure. No worries, I use rangefinder style lens hoods - they are about $10 each. The outer ring is threaded so they also work as filter step up rings. I can carry one filter and use it on various lenses.

This rangefinder-style lens hood steps up from 46mm lens threads to a 52mm lens cap and filter.
