Kevin, thanks for starting this thread off with some great photos.

I recognize all but the last one. I don't want to repeat myself but I don't think I've seen this one of the the woman with her happy holidays love and Bloomies bag in the blizzard before - it's wonderful. Love the slow motion snow and the shrouded street lights..everything about it says really cold, really late and get me home. Great shot.

Love the woman in the snow!

A memory to share with the OM 24/2, a very nice lens for 4/3 or Micro 4/3:

I got one of these in a trade. It's a somewhat late "Zuiko" model (serial # 114,993). I've read pretty mixed opinions on this lens, usually unfavorably versus the 24/2.8. I also have a 24/2.8 for comparison. There's very little between them in IQ as best I can tell. Slight advantage on center sharpness to the 24/2.8, slightly better corners on the 24/2.0 when both lenses are set to f/4.0. The 24/2.0 is significantly larger, of course.

Notable: The 24/2.8 fits on a standard Speed Booster, but does NOT fit a Speed Booster Ultra. The little metal petals on the bottom of the lens touch the Speed Booster Ultra glass. The 24/2.0, however, does fit the Ultra.

A couple of 24/2.0 shots (on EM5ii + Speed Booster, for ~18mm). Need to use it more.

A couple more on Speed Booster Ultra. Both shot at f/2.8 on the lens -- effective f/2.0, and pretty sharp. Against the brick walls, there was pretty noticeable barrel distortion, but pretty easily smoothed over in ACR.
