I'm still not decided on this one. It is really very sharp but needs a lot of tone and contrast boosting. It looks really clean but maybe I'll have it serviced anyway, just to be sure. Or does someone have similar experiences? I had expected more contrast. Once you tweak it a little, the colors come out nicely. Anyway, here are father & daughter at the cafe.

The faces look too red for my taste.
However I would not consider colour much, as it can be fine tuned later (if you shoot digitally)
Concentrate rather on the bokeh, which I find very very good - not "mashed potatoes" and not "busy" either - a very nice way in between.

Thanks Orio. I may have overcompensated a bit in Lightroom, also lightly increased the saturation, maybe I should leave that as it is...

In any case, it really is a nice lens on my GH1 because it is so small.
