I love that lens. It is one of the reasons I stayed so long with my E-3 in spite of the fairly primitive sensor. In decent light, I found myself turning out images at least as good as what I am producing with my OM-D E-M1 and Canon EOS 6D.

I still occasionally take mine out for a bit of a "play" as it still works perfectly well with my E-M1 & MMF-3 combination.

I really enjoy those photos of yours.

Thanks!

I too loved this lens. It was a bit dark at the long end, but the 12-60mm range is just so useful. You could take it out and not worry about having other lenses.

This one was taken with an E-M1 making use of an MMF-3 adaptor. A fair bit of post processing to bring out the details in the shadows.

There is a fair bit of loss of definition brought on by the conversion to a low res jpeg, but the originals are very sharp and clear.

Taken with an Olympus E-3 during a late 2012 trip back to South Africa.

The original photo was in raw format and then I post-processed and cropped it using Olympus Viewer 3.

Tried to link to Flickr so that I could see whether the definition of the photo could be retained:
