Very good, do you have a shot of it mounted to your E-P2?

Cheers

Hmm, no...got to snap one! I've got the hood, too, it's quite nifty looking.

mabel - I hate to call you mabel when my son is around, but no matter

Those are great, the almost unique (semi) OOF areas that certainly get your eyes wondering what is happening - don't get me wrong, I like them - but I have not seen the like of that bokeh before

there is a lot of discussion on the web, or the anorak forums, about bokeh at wide open f settings on lenses that effective become much longer because of the crop factor

i.e. is this the bokeh at 120mm @ f1.5 or is it 120mm at ??? or what

It's more like bokeh at 60mm f/1.5, then cropped--that's basically what the sensor is doing. Though this format was of course designed for half frame--about the same area as the 4/3 sensor.

I agree the bokeh is distinctive--that's much of what I like about the lens. handling is great, too. And by about f/4 this lens is very sharp--I feel as though the Pen lenses were overdesigned, back in the day.

but can the bokeh be the same as a 60mm f1.5 when the FOV is different even when a 120mm is cropped - Im not an expert in any way

Sure, it's exactly as it was designed to be used! Like I said, even on the original Pen SLR, the negative was 18x24mm...these are practically native lenses. Bokeh's the same as my film shots...
