    Here is an interesting little (unscientific experiment). Both images were shot within a few minutes of one another. I used a Panasonic G2 in A mode (RAW) @f4. All things considered I think the little 28/2.8 is quite a nice surprise. FWIW the OM 28 is easier to focus. I think both shots look good. Since the 28 was all of $45 I am a bit more impressed with it than the 40. Not bad for a much maligned little lens.
