Seconded. Tiny, lightweight, superb image quality at wide apertures.

Thanks for the comments, I am very tempted to invest, the wide aperture appeals to control the depth of field.

It's a wonderful portrait lens if you want / need that 90mm focal length. I love it but don't have reason to use it very often, just because I don't need that long a lens so often. I find myself using the 25mm Summilux more often.

A superb lens and for the price it is almost a must have lens - optically, the results are stunning and it makes a great cheap portrait lens, small, light, bright and fast to focus.

A real winner.

Enjoy. This post actually made me dig mine out and I've been shooting with it around the house & garden today. The quality on the OM-D has to be seen to be believed.
