As a commercial realtor and property manager, I am just curious how this lens would work on exterior property shots such as strip center shots? I'm about to pull the trigger on OM-D soon and I think the brokerage would spring for the lens.

It will work very well also on exterior, I think even better.

I agree. I think the exterior is where the EM-5 really shines. You can make a shot and think that you have blown-out areas in the clouds in the sky and when you open the image in Adobe Camera Raw 7.3 (the latest version) and move the "Highlight" slider to the left and watch the detail appear it is amazing.

Also, with the flip-out screen, you can elevate the camera on a pole, or tripod held overhead and still be able to see the screen to correctly compose the shot. I use the 12 second timer when doing overhead shots. I wish Oly had more options for the timer. Sometimes 2 seconds is not enough and 12 seconds is a little too long.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should
