Watch out for your aperture if you're coming from DSLR. M4/3 sharpens up quickly but also gets into diffraction land quickly. So it's now "F4 and be there" and stopping down beyond F8 can degrade image quality.

Diffraction only becomes an issue after F11-F16 or so.

Based on the calculator at this very helpful resource- http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/diffraction-photography.htm

It seems like diffraction starts kicking in at f/16, so I'd say there's quite a bit of room to work with in terms of stopping down.
