The focus speed on the old version is not an issue for me, but the grinding noises is, I think it is the worst among all M4/3 lenses. If panasonic can make improvement on that area, I'm in. Keeping my finger crossed, waiting for real world test result...

Something tells me that you need to wait a while before you put down the deposit, because you might see a same type of camera but carries "Panasonic" brand, happened many times before, maybe the GF pro?

Ooooooo...

kingsix87: At first glance it is a wonderful lens, but actually Ken Rockwell is quite right. I own AF-S 35/1.8 DX and since i sold my other lens it is the only lens I have. It is almost perfect, but I'd rather have it somewhere around 28-31mm for more "normal" angle. Like the wonderful ( and awfully expensive ) Pentax 31mm limited. The new 40mm macro lens is a bit short for macro, a bit long for normal and a bit dark for a prime. Nevertheless if I didn't have the 35/1.8 I would have considered it because of the versatility - you always have to compromise when you want all-in-one lens. Especially if your other lens is a dark travel zoom like 18-135, 18-200, etc...

+1
waiting for more review on the lens, especially the sharpness at infinity, if that comes out positive, I might get one, otherwise, I stick with my 55mm f2.8 AIS.

alwye: Nikon's reaction to all these M4/3 craziness. One more reason you should stick with Nikon DSLR. Imaging that, 40mm f2.8 on APS-C equals 30mm f1.4 in M4/3, and macro, try to get that for $279 from Olympus or Panasonic, lol.

I have a D90, as well as an E -P2, got it when it first came out, and I love it. All I tried to say was I wish Olympus and Panasonic can make some budget lens like this one. Last check the only M4/3 macro will set you back $700+ and the new 25mm costs $600.
M4/3 is a fantastic system, I'm aware of that, but still long way to go to catch up Dslrs, pushing out a $900 new body every 3 months is not the way to go, focus on the lens development.
M4/3 fans are very defensive here, calm down!
