Don't go for the earring personally, but the sharpness is pretty impressive, as is the naturalness.

Got my copy for about 195USD in my currency, can't complain when you get a lens like this for such price. check out the full resolution image on my flickr. Sharpness is quite good right from wide open and will increase a bit by stopping down to 4 with sensational corner sharpness, nice bokeh too. But at close distance light fall-off visibly at max aperture. I usually get blurred images with it maybe due to my technique, or not fast enough aperture, or EPL-5's crappy IBIS.

AF and CA are no big difference compared to P25's, will give more tests when I get home and post here.

jyc thanks for sharing these. Do you have any examples of outdoor portraits? I really want to see how this lens looks with natural lighting.

Also, how is the autofocus? Is there a delay at start up?
you're welcome:thumbup: Here are some other samples I've taken today, working against light, colour, AF and CA are all very good, sharpness is great from edge to edge right from max aperture.

And I've noticed a quite short delay when starting up which I think can be ignored. the lens will quickly stop down to f4 in order to check the mechanism and then return to wide open. and the focusing element inside is loose when not powered, anyway it takes a little time to start up on an EPL-5 body. haven't tried that on my Lumix. Hope that helps.

Thank you! You've certainly given me something to think about between this and the Oly45.

Wow, I'm impressed. I love my 30 and was curious how the 60mm would do.
