Default EPL-1 Macro test with oly 35mm 3.5

Here are couple of quick shots with the oly lens mounted to the epl-1. The shots were taken with AF, hand held. f3.5 1/20 sec with IS. The AF was not that bad. I had bad lighting and did not want to break out the tripod. That test at a small aperture will be for tomorrow.

First opinion of the set up. The lens will not be able to C-AF. It is kinda slow in the S-AF, but works. Seems to make a good portrait lens for set shots.

I did not get a chance to put it on a tripod and set the aperture to f9-22. That will be tomorrow when I have better lighting.

not going to be much at all at f3.5 when the working distance is measured in inches.

The first 2 shots were 4 inches away, the 3 was 3 inches away. But tomorrow we will see how it works at f9 f14 and f22.

The 35mm is a great little lens. The first time I bought one (early last year), I did not like it that much. I found very hard to get accurate focus. I'd point the center of the VF to the object but often the area on focus was either at the front or back. So, I sent it back. Then a few months later, after seeing so many good results on the net, I decided to buy it again. This time I did not have as many problems (perhaps the first lens was bad). Then I sold my Oly gear and the 35mm went with it. No that I have two m4/3 cameras, I'm seriously considering buying it for the third time. So, I'm curious to see the results of your next test at smaller apertures.
