    This tiny lens does not cover the 4/3 sensor as seen in photo #1 and the uncorrected focal length creates some nasty distortion. Photo #2 shows the weird bokah that this lens ocasionally produces (OK more the occasionally). Photo 3 shows a more normal rendering. I don't know why I like this lens except that it is so cute and often suprises me.

    Good color, the lens has a sort of funky feel to it. :thumbup:

    More than sort of actually. It is about the size of my thumb and really looks odd on my
    G3.

    I know, I have a c-mount 25mm f1.4 that looks really strange on my Pens.
