Well, it seems that Oly won't grant us some f2.8 zoom goodness, and I'm seriously thinking of getting the above duo. I've been pouring over the reviews, but the very few examples of these on the E-M5 body have kinda scared me.

So, what are your experiences, and more specifically

1. is the focusing speed up to par?

2. how do you deal with the CA? is it easily fixable in Lightroom?

3. I can haz some raw files to play with?

Thats all, thanks for any input.


Sigh. thanks, but you didn't read the title of my post. I'm aware about this review, but it is made with a Panasonic body, and as expected everything is fine and dandy.

Simply if a product(s) kinda scare me I do not buy it.

1> up to par with what?

2> preset in Lightroom (no problem)

3> sorry no.

Hey, if i didn't delve into stuff that scared me, i would still be stuck with Canon EOS. The main reason that I'm peeping this is the expense, after this eventual purchase I won't be able to buy nice gear for some years to come, due to family issues.

1. Sorry, i wasn't specific enough. Up to par with an E-M5 and a fast (focusing wise) Olympus zoom lens.

2. Are you referring to some 3rd party presets, or the default LR defringing tool?

3. okay
