This lens has a concave front element, giving it strange bokeh in the OOF highlights. I don't think it's bad hokeh. Actually, I don't think there is such a thing as bad bokeh, just different bokeh.

Based on those samples it has just about the worst vignetting I have seen with a lens wide open.

Not only that, but this thing is massive!

Dimensions: 128mm x 74mm dia
Weight: 1150g

Holy cow, that beast weighs 100g more than my Nikon 300mm f4.5 EDIF!

I don't care how good it is, I'll keep my suddenly tiny and light (64.3 dia. x 74.6 mm and 571g) little Voigtländer 42.5mm, which really is a beautiful lens on so many levels.

Still, it's great to see more companies releasing lenses for M/43! It's become quite an amazing system And getting better and more diverse all the time!
