Anyone used this lens? The reviews on dpreview.com look pretty good.

This is an outstanding lens. Very sharp and with creamy bokeh. Pictures look like taken with Leica "Noctilux" or Canon 50/0.95 "Dream lens".

Here it is on sale in excellent condition and price is quite low at the moment - $500: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270772552158

I just noticed this thread: I have occasionally been using the 50\0,95 with the EP1 since the MFT format was launched. It is much too big for everyday use, but very useful in low light. Sharp and contrasty, but like all fast lenses needs accurate focussing if used wide open.

100mm with 2x crop factor. i have ep2 and with crappy high iso performance, and need to have at least 1/100th second shutter speed, how useful is this lens in actual practice? i know i find it very difficult to even shoot 80mm indoors with ep2...i'm sure its a great lens but does it make sense if the plan is to use it primarily indoors at high iso with m4/3?
