    Was just about to search and ask about this. Too bad there aren't many other reviews out there--In the meantime I'll be saving up for the 75 1.8.

    The Olympus Macro Converter MCON-P01 will work and provide close-up view from both lens, 12-35mm Panasonic-X and 14-150mm Olympus.

    12-35, 14-150 and MCON-P01 share same filter size at 58mm.

    Enjoy your new Panny-X 12-35mm soon.

    Seems like some portrait examples would be appropriate. Instead, these reviews show bricks and flowers.

    I agree, some portraits would be nice.

    Looks like all the Panasonic adapters are 37 or 46mm threads. Safe to assume that they won't work then?

    I gave up on the first review when the fool pointed out the lens has no CA (they tested on a G5). Does he have any clue about software correction in Panasonic lenses and bodies?

    How do people who are so clueless get early access to these toys?

    Filter thread: size of screw mount for adding filters like polarizing or neutral density filters. Nothing to do with the Beyer filter in any camera.

    I think he meant "bayonet", not Beyer.

    There will be a whole host of reviews still to far the reviews have been outstanding for the lens on virtually every single aspect other than price which many consider to be a little high....DSLRmagazine did a review recently and write that in virtually every regard optically, the Panasonic is VERY close or equal to the equivalent Canon 'L'....and in few points superior even !

    Seemed like a pretty positive review, except for the comments about size, which I don't understand ... Has this guy seen any other 70-200 (equiv) f/2.8 lenses? This thing is practically a pancake by comparison

    It's my blog and post and you make a fair point vs other similar lenses for FF (which are all huge). My point was that for a M43s lens it will seem huge (N.B. I've updated my post to reflect this).

    Nice review. Please take a look at CA with the E-M5.

    I didn't notice any, TBH, but that may be more down to the conditions. Anecdotally it seems much better with CA than the 12-35mm. There is something about this lens - feels better screwed together than the 12-35mm (which was pretty good itself).

    It's funny, but coming from Nikon's old 80-200 AF-S, my first reaction when seeing this lens was, "Goodness gracious that is *tiny*!" Everything's relative I guess.

    CA is always less of an issue with longer lenses.
