    I use it with the E-P1. It works great, lovely Zuiko colours. It is a bit soft wide open (still usable), but sharpens nicely around f2. I really like this lens on the E-P1.

    It is a lens with a lot of flare. That's not a complement.

    It is a bit soft wide open but it is a good portrait lens.

    I have no problem with flare (although I mostly use it in low light), I got the multi coated version, I have read that the single coated flares alot..

    I love this lens. Visibly brighter than the 1.8, much lighter than the 1.2.

    This pic was taken with an E-P2, inside of a fairly dark restaurant in LA.

    The subject of this one is the wonderful young singer-songwriter Arrica Rose.

  12. Soft but lovely

    My first experience with a "portrait" lens, first portrait taken with it, wide open on an E-PL1:

    I think I'm catching the "fast 50" bug, eying up a Vivitar 50mm F1.4 now.....hopefully it's sharper. But the Olly is probably what will come to restaurants.
