    Just wanted to share my first attempts with it. Nothing special...just excited! I have only gotten to play with it briefly since it arrived. I am new to micro 4/3, so I am still giddy over the IQ for the small size! My two best models know that they earn their keep by letting mommy experiment with her new lenses on them! :)

    Both photos with an EPM-1.

    Thanks, Ned! I am looking forward to using it a lot!

    Thanks, starlabs...I have people kids, too :) I got to play with the lens on my daughter a little this evening. Someday, I'm going to dress her up and do this, but until that day, I'll take her everyday look! I'm a little biased since she's my girl, but I think she is always beautiful :) My son is not real cooperative when it comes to pics, but I snuck a few of him...

    The trick to getting your kids to pose, is to tape their allowance to your forehead when taking their picture. Keeps their eyes on you, and their smiling because of the money to come.

    My pleasure, if I have anything you want to try out just let me know. I can't use all of them at the same time.

    I bought this lens when purchased my GH-2 a week ago and I absolutely love it. I haven't had as much time to take pics lately because of moving but once I get settled in I will.

    I have this lens for the last three weeks and I have mixed feeling about it . I have yet to take it for proper testing but I am not very excited . I have Olympus 45 mm 1.8 and I adore that glass. I also loved my Panny 20 mm 1.7
    Cheers

    I think is a great lens, but it can't replace my 20 or 45, it just adds to my list of keepers. Make it a pancake and boo ya!!!!

    We are talking about the same lens right? Panny leica lens? Cause if so I see no reason why you wouldn't be excited. I've had a lot of fun with it so far.:thumbup:

    YEs Sir..We are talking about the same lens.If u have used Panny 20 mm 1.7 and Olympus 45 mm 1.8 then u will be less excited .Its a good lens no doubt about it but nothing spectacular .I am sorry Leica name doesn't stop me from telling the truth ..hahaah
