Yes, I agree with Johan, you get such good results with this lens. I think I go back to flash again, instead of constant light. Maybe they were dumped by JML because it was not a quality consistant production serie? Or maybe every piece of glass you throw at Laurie get him good results? :) It is the photographer that make a good shot , not the equipment.

This objective seems to do very well in the centre, with the subject on a relatively flat plane. This seems like a sensible test to do, funnily enough I'd intended to do exactly the same with yesterday's robberfly (ie add a x20 eye shot below) but sadly ran out of time. I'd hope to have a go over the weekend but unfortunately things are conspiring against my having any time available as usual.

Very cool. The 4/3 sensor size also helps. I bet on a FF camera this lens won't shine as much.

Mischa, please explain why a 4/3 would be better ? I though bigger sensor=better quality.

[] It's possible the image circle from this lens won't cover a full frame sensor at proper extension or if it does it would utilise more of the edge of the glass, where the quality usually drops off. Someone would need to test the lens on a FF camera to know if this was definitely the case.
