better built than you'd imagine from some of the reviewers. optically? just to die for... this is such a nice lens. i'd feel very comfortable paying twice the price because 1. it doesn't have any real distortion, 2. it focuses instantly, 3. colour and...

Everything... just one of those rare gems

I got this over the Christmas holiday on my way to CA. Was able to see it and hold it at a real camera store (Shutterbug in Portland, OR). Fell in love with it right away. What can you say: Sharp, Small, Light, Fast and Excellent. Very pleasing out of...

Small, light, sharp, silent, fast focussing, fast aperture, reasonably priced

I'm using this lens on a Panasonic G3. Optically it can't be beat and it is small and light, the main advantage of the MFT format. It focuses fast and silently. I too am a Canon 5D2 user and with this lens my MFT rig is starting to give me the kind...

tack sharp, small and light

no lens hood included; very small lens cap; could be better at macro
