Thanks for the link!Not to get too off topic, but the 45 f/1.2 is supposedly the sharpest MFT lens ever tested
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45 mm f/1.2 PRO review - Image resolution - LensTip.com
I never read anything on that site about lenses. It does seem the Olympus 45mm f/1.2 PRO is the sharpest in their lineup and it does beat the 75mm which I thought I too saw with mine. I started wondering if I got a bad copy of the 75mm, but might be the 45mm is just that much better. My 75m isn't bad, but the 45mm pulls stuff off the sensor I thought only a high-megapixel camera could do. They have some head-shots on the link at the end of the article and the detail in the hair is amazing for a m43 camera. Pretty much what I saw in a 3/4 body shot and saw the individual eyebrow hairs when zoomed in, I was thinking "No way can this be happening!" After that, the Nikons, lenses, and the 40 pound roller bag got shoved into the back of the closet.
More interesting is the 12-100mm is sharper than their 300mm f/4 too given it is a zoom. Olympus did win some Japanese Engineering Award for the 12-100mm I saw elsewhere. Broke the mold with it, so to speak.
