    I only had a few minutes to test this lens with my E-PL2 a couple of days ago. Seems sharp to my inexperienced eye, but I'm not sure about the overall colour in the second picture!

    View from a petrol station near Westonbirt, Gloucestershire:

    A quick check of the second picture doesn't show any evidence of color tinting, so unless you processed some out already the lens isn't doing anything untoward to your color.

    Actually I like the second picture. I don't have the feeling that there is an undue colour cast; reducing magenta a little bit may bring it more to your taste.

    I like both shots. That said, the color seems a bit flat in the first and I think the white balance may be off in the second (looking at the clouds).

    Spooky - I've just aquired the same lens. Mine's a late copy - regretably somewhat overdescribed on ebay, but still in acceptable condition.

    Initial impressions are that it is useable at f2.8, pretty sharp by f4.
