    Mine arrived from Olympus this morning. Grabbed a couple of quick shots in my flower garden. Windy day so probably a little subject movement. These were handheld shots. As far as I'm concerned this lens is a keeper :)

    Still thinking about the 75 f1.8 after being inspired by your photos, RT-Panther :)

    Wow- those are great.

    The lens looks like a must have for anyone who wants macro. And with the weather sealing, quality, and weather sealed-ness; I'm surprised at the cost point, I really did expect it to be at least 50% more than it's priced. Not to mention that the lens is available so soon after official announcement too :wink:

    The last set of samples is awesome. Nice work, Jane. :bravo-009: But I'd urge you to take care when using it for portraits. It's a nice focal length, but most female subjects wouldn't care to show that many pores. :rolleyes:

    Will be interesting to see whether anyone does any comparisons with the Pan Leica 45mm.

    I have both lenses at the moment, I'll try and do some comparison shots of the same subjects and post up some thoughts in the next day or two (obviously just early impressions, since I only just got it).

    danska - you can lend your commentary also, I'd be curious to see another point of view on the 2 lenses compared.
