Any list members using regular 4/3 lens with adaptors on OMD-E5's ?

Esteemed List Members:

I am lens shopping and got a bit of a "reset" when I ordered the Pany 12-35 F2.8 lens.  Pricey, but my comparison is full size Canon DLSR lenses so I did not barf.

But, based on my tests, the IQ was not sufficiently better than the Oly 12-50 kit lens, so I returned it.  I compared 4 total lenses in the test, the Pany, the Oly kit lens, an Oly 14-300 and a Zeiss 35mm with adapter.

So armed with this "failure", I am still searching for the correct solution.  The E5 is a good platform and I am sure that giving it good glass would make it happier.

So, the question to the list is: are there any list members who have successfully (a subjective term, for sure) used the full 4/3 Oly lenses on the OMD-E5.  More specifically, any that have used the Oly "Super High Grade" lenses and have been pleased.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
