I bought one of these about eight months ago, and have been very impressed
with it.  Although the lens is a little on the large size, I find it to be
very sharp and contrasty.

Of all the lenses I have (24mm/2.8, 50mm/1.8, 100mm/2.8, 180mm/2.8 and a
Tokina 70-210mm/4-5.6) I use the 35-105mm the most for general photography,
and switch to a prime lens when I have a particular subject/goal in mind.

I was surprised to see in an earlier thread that the 35-105mm was actually
made for Zuiko by Tokina.  Not a concern though, because I am quite happy
with the lens.

Hope this helps,
