    Using the adapter, the four thirds 35mm f3.5 macro works pretty well.

    The first shot using the G5 looks a heck of a lot sharper to my old eyes. Were the settings the same on both shots?

    This was non-scientific. They were both handheld, shooting from approximately the same position under similar light, but a few minutes apart. After my initial comparison, I tried again with the Olympus/Olympus combination, with the same results. I was setting aperture priority. The two I posted were very similar.

    Panasonic/Olympus
    1/100 second, f7.1, ISO 160

    Olympus/Olympus
    1/80 second, f8.0, ISO 500

    I also had an identical photo with the Panasonic at the shutter speed and aperture -- 1/80 second, f8.0 -- but the ISO was 160. I was a little further from the flower on that shot, but it is just as sharp. (I cropped the photo below just for comparison.) It is interesting that with the same lens in the same lighting with the same aperture and shutter speed, the ISO would set so differently, and that may have been the cause of the loss of sharpness.
