    So,

    I've heard almost no discussion of this lens outside of this thread (link to comment with pics)

    Vivitar 100mm f2.8

    I had JUST read that thread when a very nice sample popped on ebay for $40. Couldn't say no.

    Long story short, this is by far the nicest 100mm-ish lens I've used on M43.

    Build quality is old-school: all metal, all the time. It's incredibly sharp wide-open, the bokeh is lovely, and the color rendition is just beautiful.

    Here's a few samples from my very limited use so far with the EP-2:
