Supposed to be one of the sharpest MFT lenses. But not worrking for me.

This lens has nearly universal good reviews. For instance check out Robin Wongs Blog. This is the main lens he uses, and his pictures are insanely sharp. But my 45MM was not very shrap. This was my 5th lens from Olympus, but I have sent it back. I also have the 17MM f1.8 lens, and it takes sharp beautiful pictures. And the 17MM is supposed to be on the soft side. So comparing my 17MM to this lens, this lens lost out. This lens gave me pictures about the same as the kit lens at 42MM.
From the reviews, I think that this is a good lens, but the one I got was soft. SO I sent it back, I am going to wait on buying another lens. I got my 17MM from a camera shop, so I shot with it before making the purchase, you cannot do this from Amazon. Lenses are one of the things that I am not that comfortable buying online, I really need to shoot with the exact lens I am planning to buy.
