I have never tried the SP 90 on the E1, but I still use it on my OM's, and it is a cracking lens.

I also have a Tamron SP 70 ~ 210 f 3.5 (with the 2 x converter) which is a bit heavy, but very satisfying to use.

I wonder how these lenses would stack up against current Zuikos on the test bench? Maybe not very well, but like valve amplifiers, it is the end result that matters.
