How good is the EM 1 and 12-40 combo?

Hi Forum,

I have just got my new Camera with this new 12 - 40 lens, having traded in the EM 5 and 45f1/8.  Please note that I also have a Canon 6D with the 24 -70 f2.8 which is a Full Frame kit.

These last few days, I have gone out only with the EM 1 combo, just keeping to the basics, only using the front and rear dials to make quick aperture and shutter changes while sticking to single point AF.

Here are my samples?  These are from the RAW files which I processed in Camera RAW with only 40% sharpening without colour or tone changes.  I shot these in overcast conditions as you can tell from the lack of shadows.

The Melbourne Cup - The Race that stops the Nation

Dog House

The King Lives.

Please do tell me what you think.
