    Clearly an outstanding lens and now with a camera that can do justice to its powers. The first portrait especially is lovely - I suspect that more noise reduction was applied to the second, which isn't quite as good. I have three Four Thirds lenses and look forward to one day trying them out on an E-M1.

    I agree this lens has been missing and needed to be talked about. I remember seeing some stellar examples taken with the E-3 and E-30 cameras & wondered why I haven't seen any shots taken with µ4/3 cameras. might be the cost of the lens , but than again the 12-35 aint cheap ether. Anyway, Bravo on your shots.
    Its a shame I do not see myself being able to afford that lens or camera anytime in the near future.

    One small photo critique, if you don't mind. Regarding the 1st portrait, which is a lovely composition, use Photoshop and the cloan tool, to cloan out the small scar under her left nostril. It is unfairly distracting from an otherwise beautiful image.

    Usually I do not use noise reduction since I love to get as much as possible details from images. Here I think me in combination with 1/20 s at a focal length of 33 mm were the limiting factors. Of course, 14-35 produces more detail under very best conditions.

    Best regards,
    Alex

    The 14-35mm is usually my standard lens, because it's such a great all-rounder.

    I would love to see a comparison of image quality between this lens and the Oly and Pana pro lens.
    It would be interesting to see if the one extra stop and added size is worth it, over getting a new Olympus 12-40mm lens, if you don't already own the 14-35mm one, because I think when you take into consideration the cost of a used 14-35mm and an MMF-3 adapter, many might think one might a swell buy a new Olympus 12-40mm lens.

    If I didn't have the 14-35mm, then I'd most certainly consider the 12-40mm instead. You get slightly more at the wide and long end, which can be very handy, and a size and weight benefit, which to me doesn't matter all that much. The price difference is also pretty substantial.

    That is a very interesting shot.

    Mind you, you shouldn't post images of such magnificent lenses, it has a tendency to upset people. ;)

    This one is an AWESOME photo!
    It looks like she's got cat like eyes.
    I've see photos of this woman before, but her eyes were not like this.
    So I am sure it must be a cool trick of shadow and reflections.
