Hi Crimbo

I'm not normally one for moggie pics but I just had to comment as it's the best moggie pic I've seen in a very long time.

Nice one......

That's very good. I tried to get my cat outdoors in look pretty in the snow - but she said it was far too cold.

Very nice picture - superb for the many moggie fans out there :)

The 28mm pancake disappointed me when I first tried it. It really wasn't appreciably sharper than the 14-42 kit lens (although as we all know the 14-42 is one of the best kit zoom lenses available) But you have made me wonder if the the limiting factor was the camera I used at the time - the E-420,if I recall. The E-5, with its greater resolution and lighter anti-aliasing filter, may allow the 25 pancake to perform better. On the other hand, the pancake lens was primarily designed for smaller bodies like the E-400/600 series, and doesn't make an awful lot of sense on a big body like an E-5. But you have inspired me to give the pancake another go with the E-5 - so watch this space!

Our cat was well up for having her photo taken ...... just a long as it was in front of the blazing hot fire *chr

Hey Crimbo, five minutes in the microwave should thaw it out.

Ian, I've been avoiding wanting the 25mm as a couple have come up for sale here ... because I thought it would be less sharp than my excellent kit lenses. If it is at least as sharp as the 14-42 then I might be interested again. I have the 14-54MkI for quality, I don't have any pankcakes at all. I should maybe try to borrow one and try it on my e-410 a while...
