So does the 28/2, 90/2, and 180/2.8.  My 100/2.8 is good and sharp, but not 
as neutral as the others (warms things up noticeably -- little tweak to the 
auto WB might be all it needs, or just postprocess).  I have to leave 
something for Ken to sort out!

Higher stops are great, too (f11, f16).  I'm certain now that Olympus 
doesn't recommend them because the camera will usually underexpose without 
the precaution of exposure compensation.

Perhaps that seems like a pain, but not to me.  I get images back with the 
familiar "stamp" of these beloved lenses.  Pretty darn nice.

I have a little trouble focusing the 28/2 and 180/2.8.  But the 90/2 just pops!
