    I got one yesterday in Perth, WA. Here are my attempts with it. Incredibly sharp, and all pictures were taken hand-held.

    First picture from seagull in Cottesloe Beach, an hour or so after I got the lens yesterday; all others were taken during a bike ride around lakes Monger and Herdsman this morning.

    I'm seeing lots of reviews saying hold well it works hand held. Did you use it on an EM5?

    Camera was an E-M1 w/ firmware 4.0. Lens works fine hand held, although those pictures were taken around noon, with speeds in the 1/400 to 1/640 range.

    Don't forget to upgrade the E-M1 to firmware 4.1.

    Yes, I'll post more images and first impressions after I get acquainted with the lens this weekend.

    Will do this after I get back home (back in Brazil early March).
