It will certainly be interesting to see what Damian McGillicuddy, and the others get up to with it...
Same here, the 35mm was my least used prime in my OM system decades.

But I actually like 35mm as a long standard on 4/3. My 17mm Tamron SP isn't bad on 4/3 but it's still not an field of view I use much. I don't think I've used the Tamron since I tested it on a 4/3 body.
It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
