New Olympus 12mm f2 is STUNNING

I've just taken delivery of the 12/2.

Its simply stunning. Some test shots around the garden have already proved this lens is a definite keeper (even considering the high price).

It absolutely blows the socks off the panny 14/2.5.

its very sharp corner to corner, and at f2 provides a wonderful milky smooth bokeh.

Its so far the only lens which has really impressed me on m43. Superior to the 20/1.7 too.

the snap manual focus works a dream.

If you are on the fence with this one, just push the button...

Will post some samples asap on this thread...
