Well, I've had mine 24 hours now...still steep on the learning curve for this FOV. Here are a few shots from around the house...

Ooh looks nice. Ive had my hands on an om 24mm an I love the focal length on film. Great for street and landscape. I'll put some scans up at some point when I get home. This lens looks hot but I don't think it's in my budget at least this year.

Here are a few test shots

I haven't posted for a while - been very busy.
Here are several quick test shots from the 12mm. It's a great lens with my E-P2 and I'll post up some more shots as I put it to work.

Man, I wish my back yard looked like that!

Me too. My backyard has too much junk in it to shoot right now...

Here's one from this morning. I wonder if an optical finder might go well with the 12mm. I have the evf-2 but an optical finder might provide me with more spontaneity for the way I like to shoot and give me longer battery life as well.

Wow, the distortion on the lens is more than I had anticipated. Though I suppose a true rectilinear lens that is 12mm is pretty much unheard of.

Look at the picture of the bridge by Alans. Unless the bridge curvers inward and there was a strong wind blowing across the frame.

That bridge is not flat. Not a straight horizontal part in the design.

I think the bridge looks ok, it's more the trees in the mid left of frame in the distance.

It looks pretty darn good if you ask me thought

It is an arched bridge with a very pronounced curve. I've been on vacation and will post more with the 12mm. Just a FYI, I took the 12mm along with the 20mm and 40-150mm and I was able to cover quite a bit on a road trip, very portable and comfortable.

I like it - and there have been so many wide angle lenses I haven't liked!
