Has anyone tried this lens with the Olympus E-P1? They are both Micro Four Thirds, should work, but how well?

The lens is not out yet, Olympus has their own wide angle portrait lens, the 17mm, but it's slower at f2.8.

There is a reveiw up at Dpreview. They have tested it on a E-P1 as well.

BTW, this isn't really a wide angle lens. In fact, it's very close to a true "normal" lens, which would be 21.64mm on these cameras, with their 13 x 17.3mm sensors. In fact, when the actual test results come out, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that the real focal length of this lens is slightly longer than the nominal 20mm. A lot of old "35mm" lenses were actually 37-38mm.

Whatever you call it, it should be a great low-light & walkaround lens for all the micro-FT cameras.

Yes, ideally I would like to have a "normal" lens (or slight macro) which is a pancake, micro four-thirds and fast.
F1.1 / 35mm Micro FT Pancake would be ideal, but this is the closest we got.
I'd like to learn more about the "pancake" designs, are they even *capable* of macro focal lengths or large apertures?
Sorry, off topic...
If anyone has experience with this and the E-P1, PLEASE POST!
Thanks,
-J

I bought this a couple months back - works great!
Also playing around with C-Mount adapter and manual Pentax lense (25mm/1.4).
Very interesting look.

I'm using the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on my E-P2, stunning results that have enough detail to print poster size. Anyone with any m4/3's camera should have this lens!
