Yes, the 35-100 (in your case 105) focal lengths were among my favourites when I used MFT. I do very much like your last photograph.

What is the difference between "Zuiko" and "OM Zuiko" lenses? I know Zuiko has been used for many different Olympus lenses, not just OM mount, but I would have thought your 24/2.8 et al. were OM lenses too. Educate me, please!

I'm no expert, but I'll try!

Thanks, but I think I was confused. I read your statement, "I do like the focal range, and thought it would be nice to have a Zuiko in that range if it were decent - would make a nice set with the 24/2.8, 28-48 and 50/1.4, one less adapter to carry," as implying that this "OM Zuiko" was somehow different to your other "Zuiko" lenses. Sorry.

Ah! Yes, my bad there. I need to be more precise and consistent; 90% of the time I'm talking about OM Zuikos, but I do have a couple of Pen-F Zuiko lenses (and am reminded of them with  Gnarlydog's recent post!), and also a couple of native M4/3 Zuikos I currently use.
