    Couldn't find an existing thread for this lens. This lens is tiny and fits well in my coat pocket. Easy to focus and quite sharp. Lack of contrast easily fixed in post processing. Olympus100mm.
    Overall, a joy to use and highly recommended

    I like the Pen FT 100mm f/3.5 too. It's size and weight on a GF1 are great. But it took me several weeks of on and off messing with it to get results I liked. Initially everything was too flarey and too soft.
    I also discovered that our toilet paper rolls make a perfect press-fit hood on this lens as-is, with no vignetting.

    Here are some pre and post processing photos I'm happy with with this lens, showing how much better it is with a little rework in (for me) digikam.
