    Interesting, thanks. I kinda like that donut bokeh.

    Well, I got as far as: "Additionally, ensure that your camera’s IS compensation is set to 600mm" and I knew there was a problem.

    IS compensation should be set to 300mm, the FL of the lens. There's a thread right now about this: https://www.mu-43.com/f42/compensation-adapted-lens-32982/.

    Have to believe the author would have gotten better results with a correct IS setting.

    EDIT: I'm still grateful for the review, especially the pictures of the lens mounted on a camera. It's tiny! Unfortunately, this review and the others I've read suggest the lens isn't all that sharp, so I won't be buying one. Which is a shame, because I'm a HUGE proponent of tiny mirror lenses, and have owned several. Still waiting I guess for the AF version.

    Can't say I'm impressed by the sample photos. As much as I'd like another super-telephoto option, this isn't a viable one (at least for me). Need something faster & sharper.
