I love the 14 for it's size and versatility -- for me, 28mm works for alot of my needs as a go-to set-up (with my OMD). I had the 12 and sold it -- it was great but maybe I didn't know how to use the 24mm at that time and it was too expensive to keep and it wasn't compact. I find that I always need 1 very compact set-up so ease of carry. I bought the 14 from the bay like many have mentioned and it's the real deal (but without warranty). For about $180, it's worth every purple fringing penny. There's a blogger that shows how the 14 shines: phototravelasia.blogspot.com.

Thanks for all of the feedback. I plan on using the lens for portraits. I have the 45 1.8 for individual portraits, but I thought the 14 would be good for family shots. I actually don't have a kit zoom. I sold my E-3 and 12-60 and picked up the OMD, 45 1.8, and HLD-6. Anyone have any group portraits shot with the 14mm?
