Thanks Brian, for the 100/2 shot since I didn't have a tripod with me and it
is very long in E-1 (200mm in 35mm) so I didn't stop it down to bring more
DOF. It was just a test and I found that the resolution of 100/2 in E-1 is
very good (as suggested by Olympus it can use aperture from f2.8 to f8, a
tad better than other OM Zuiko except the big whites).
The 40/2 is extremely good, comparable to 50/3.5 at close distance. Of
course it cannot focusing as close as the 50/3.5 but it gives around 1:2.5
(in 35mm system), a not bad performance, infinity is also excellent as well.
It supprise me since there is no close focus correction built-in. The OOF
effect is also perfect, I will try to post some more with smaller apertures
