I'd forgotten that I had this lens ... purchased during a GAS fit and it was stored away for close to a year! So out it came for a photo walk around the neighborhood.
I have never used a zoom prime before but had heard very good things about this lens and was especially interested in the macro feature (Note I do not have the Rokkor version). It was very enjoyable and the lens performed fantastically .. at least to my eye and expectations. I put some shots into a flickr album but here are my favorites from today.
The first 2 are jpgs straight from the camera (love those Oly colors). The last 2 I tweaked with some clarity in Lightroom
