Is that on a digital body or OM though?

I would imagine the peculiarities of digital sensors would expose all sorts of 'weaknesses' that would never be seen on film.

This is one of the reasons that I chose the E-System in the first place (as it was the only system to be launched with dedicated digital lenses); and also why I have never used legacy lenses on my E-System cameras. I know I am probably missing out, but I have something to cover all focal lengths that I require on my E1 / E5.
