Re: I have version 1....

...and I want to thank you for mentioning it.  It hasn't been on either my Panasonic or Olympus body for a few years, but I just realized using it might be like a weight vacation from the Panasonic 100-400!

It was the second micro43 lens I bought for my EPL1 many years ago and I generally liked it.  I felt it wasn't as bad as many people had said.

Having the 200 (actually 400) mm reach is nice.  The Panasonic 35-100 is an excellent lens and I can crop severely with that and still get detail!

Here's a shot I just got in harsh afternoon light through my double paned window. I don't think it's bad at all. I shot in shutter priority.  ISO 1600 is the ISO beyond which I don't like to go with this camera if I want to retain feather detail.
