Eddie's take on it
Out of all the normal focal length primes, this is the best prime lens for 4/3.
Sharp wide open at f/1.4.
In 2007, when this lens came out, manufacturers were selling their old film era 50mm "normal" lenses for digital cameras. These had sub-par results, they were not sharp wide open to the point where you wouldn't even use them wide open. BUT they were small and cheap. So when Panasonic introduced this $899 50mm-equivalent lens weighing half a kilo, it was not well received.
Those who bought it, loved it, but not a lot did and it has already become a bit of a collectable. It is pretty hard to find used for a reasonable price.
