    The Oly 12-40 is definitely on my wishlist, but I really like taking IR photos with my converted Panny GX1 (720nm).

    I've noticed a few of the higher-end Oly lenses appear to suffer in infrared (hotspots, poor contrast), so has anyone tried the Oly 12-40 for infrared?

    Cheers,
    Nick.

    Hello,
    Took these in my backyard this morning with my full spectrum E-PL3 and a Hoya R72 filter on the 12-40mm.
    Not the best white balance, but good enough for this test...
    Overcast for the next few days here, I will take other shot later this week...

    Thank you, I'll look forward to some sunnier shots :) but things look promising so far.
