I'm still not sure if I will keep my Oly 12mm as the 12mm end of my 12-35 is so good. I'll give it some more time though. This is a tough test for any lens IMHO.

I’m giving that a winner because
  1. It’s a great shot; and,
  2. At 12mm with a non-weathersealed lens you must be mad!
haha thanks but I'm not that mad I have this bad boy :

I'm looking into getting this lens to round out my primes set. Photos here are looking good. Any reason this thread (or lens) is not getting more love recently?

It was released relatively early in the m4/3 system, since then I think many people have gone to using one of the 12-XX zooms (or ultrawides) for this focal length.

Interesting, as the zooms are likely 1-2 stops slower. What's a good used price for that lens where you live?

Well I'm not really in the market for it so I don't know what used stores are asking here in HK, but there's an active photo gear section on Carousell (local classifieds website) and it looks like there are a couple listed in the ~$360 USD range. New "grey import" ones seem to be about $410 USD.

Ok, you asked for it... here's a random unenhanced shot from today's walk to the store... MFD, f/5.6
