Actually there were at least four. Harder to find are the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 and the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 that were made with the 4/3 mount.there were 2 macros for the 4/3 system, a 35/3.5 and a 50/2.
I got a similar comment about my old 9-18 with adapter on my old e-P2 ... he said something like "Oh, I read it was slow to focus, this is fast."I agree with the VERY high speed of focus with the DSLR 9-18. Yeah, it's big, but neither me or the sales clerk at the shop could discern any difference in focus speed INSIDE the shop!
What did you replace it with? I have refrained from replacing the 14-54 simply because I worry that I won't find anything as good optically!When I switched to m43 I kept four-thirds 14-54 mkII, 40-150 and 9-18. Currently I have the 40-150 and the 9-18, I sold my beloved 14-54 mkII because it was really too big for my e-p5.
After many sleepless nights ;-) I convinced myself to go to the expensive route and managed to buy a used panasonic 12-35mm f2.8. So far I am very happy, it is not very light but it is confortable anyway on the pen, it adds 12mm on the wide end that I really appreaciate, but looses a few mm on the tele. As far as image quality ... look for yourself in the forum in the sample image threads and smile ;-)What did you replace it with?

Agreed, it is just one of the capabilities of the camera I'd like to explore. More a curiosity than a need, which is why I'm after the experiences of the group. It WOULD be hard for me to buy the 50 Macro, when I don't have the 60 m4/3. I also hunt pawn shops, and KNOW I'll stumble across a 4/3 kit at some point, so having the adapter (for cheap) was an easy decision.To hunt for a 4.3rds lens just for the adapter seems a bit backward...
