Was able to use this lens some minutes today. It`s amazing (imo).
It`s light, and fits the EM-1 extremely good.
All pictures in this post is taken with spot-metering (my bad).
Tbh I love this lens.

Most of the pictures was taken with 8mm first, then 18mm second.
Two different pictures pretty early in this post I focused firstly closely to the lens, then after in the back of the frame.

It started to rain quite heavily, so I had to stand under a roof. :)

Very nice - must get mine out and go for a walk in town once the lockdown starts. Be able to get buildings with no people

I just ordered a used copy of this lens from KEH (they have a 12% off sale going at the moment). Excited to see what it can do, as I found a lot of fun uses for the O9mm BCL. This one isn’t quite as pocketable, but I think I can manage.

Mine just arrived today. What a handsome lens. Should have some samples to share soon. Question—how much does everyone use the hood? I notice the lens has a bit of a hood built in that gets deeper as you go narrower.

I really don’t understand what you mean.
Can you show in pictures?

Well, there’s a removable hood, and then there’s a shroud around the lens. I guess if you have filters, this would no longer act like a hood. I’ve never had a lens that behaves like this. I’m used to them telescoping, not retracting!

Sorry for the poor photos. I just used my iPad.

Not too much luck out there today, but I don't have a lot of wide things to shoot at the moment.

This water level is quite high, due to the higher-than-average rainfall we're had over the nonsummer.. The several lakes on the Salt River--Roosevelt, Apache, Canyon, Saguaro, and this Granite Reef Reservoir, are principally flood-control lakes and dams.

I always use the hood (on all my lenses), if not for the shade then to help keep fingers, etc away from the front element. When walking around I have even gotten in the habit of zooming the 8-18 to 18mm so it retracts into the lens tube.
