...from this weekend, 35-100mm f/2.0 at f/2.0 (Olympus E-5).

Really, who the hell cares about all these equivalency arguments. There are such finer aspects of image quality and lens rendering that have a much greater impact on your photography. f/2.0 is more than sufficient for effective subject isolation even when the subject is enormous, and a couple of meters away.
