I didn't see a thread with this one, so here are a few snapshots from this afternoon. Wide open on the GH1, jpgs with minimal PP in Picasa. The macro option really makes this a cool lens.

Thanks! No flash on these, maybe it was a little too sunny to really take all pics wide open, I also thought the colors were a little subdued compared to pics I had taken with the lens stopped down.

BTW, I had taken the pics yesterday to decide whether to keep this one or the Canon FD 85/1.8 (too many lenses, need to cut back a bit...). I find the Kern to be slightly sharper wide open and to have significantly less purple fringing - and it has the added macro function which makes it really versatile in the field. I'll have to check the corner performance, but - for me - the Kern is clearly ahead.
