Compared against regular 4/3 version

I did some semi technical tests, comparing against my regular 4/3 version. It seems about as sharp - in all focal lengths. It seems to be slightly less sharp wide open, but then as sharp stopped down just a bit. As I was really happy with the 4/3 version (on my e-30) I'm really happy with this lens. It's not surprising I guess about the photo quality, given that it must be the same formula. I was surprised that it's slightly longer than my 4/3 version, although thinner. Not a whole lot different weight wise - but does seem better / nicer finished. Shame about the plastic lens mount. Focusing on my e-p1 is astonishing (to me). Indoors it's as fast as my e-30 with 40-150 phase detect.
