PeterNMIF: Wow. I didnt realize anitshock was needed in mirrorless cams. (I use it with the E620). Nice to know the E-series cams have. Is this a failing in the Pansonic G-series? They don't have anti-shock. Right? Or, is their shutter different so it doesn't create vibration??

It's for image stabilization- low light and hand held.

olyflyer: Cool, a very nice lens but...

Why f/1.8? What this system needs is at least f/1.4 or even faster, especially if it is intended to be a portrait lens. Anyway, at least with this lens Olympus is showing it is not planning to abandon the Micro 4/3 system.

what other said- also, this is the first lens from Olympus that's FASTER than f/2 (digital that is).

spontaneousservices: f1.8 sounds nicer than it is, for a 45mm "portrait" lens on 4/3. As you can see in the sample pics, even when close focused, background blur is hardly there. You'd have to go all the way to f1.2 or so to get real blur.

"hardly there?" Really? At the portrait distance the bokeh looks pleasing- and very apparent.

justmeMN: The press release states "The new 12.3 megapixel sensor is the same size as those used in pro quality DSLRs." What "pro quality DSLR" uses a Micro Four Thirds sized sensor? Big liars...

They've been refining the sensor for quite some time, it is however at it's base, the "same."

It is dramatically different to compare the results of a E-520 and a E-P2.
