    Thank you so much. Build quality is excellent too. I think most people will find Olympus to be better. This thing is heavy, but I just love different lens design and how it handles.

    The shallow DOF is fantastic, but the bokeh is a little jarring to my eyes. Looks like a fun lens, though, enjoy it.
