Just received my m.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 :)

At last the wait is over

Anyone else got theirs yet?

Same here - apparently it was loaded onto a van at 5:30 this morning.

Probably the same van! That's the only fly in the ointment with SRS - their insistence on using possibly one of the least reliable couriers in our area.

I assume you mean that Ian's, yours and mine were all on the same van? If it left the Cleveland depot at 5:30 that would be just about right

It's just arrived. I've signed for yours, Paul. He says he'll leave it behind the log pile as usual.

First impressions are that it's very, very sharp, and quick focussing. Quite a tight fit on the G3 but not unpleasantly so. Well engineered.

Finally got it - not sure what I expected but it's surprisingly small!! Off to try it out now.
