I was checking out the posts I missed here, came up to this series on the chocolate while my 2 year-old was sitting with me... she brought her finger to the screen and then licked it, saying "yummy chocolate".

definitely - she's a little glowy wide-open at f1.7, but that's solved by dropping the aperture to f2.... after that, it's all color/clarity/bokeh....

and the macro is only 1:3 - but it's a hugely-capable lens...

Thanks - 2003 sensor and the old zuiko lenses combine pretty nicely.
I was going to ask about that, have contemplated getting an OM to PK adapter so I can use the few Zuiko lenses I have. Looks like you are using a Nikon. What kind of adapter are you using?

Nice, and I agree. I have the nearly identical 'A' version, and it is sweet.

No Nikon.... I use an old Canon 450D or XSi. No glass on the adapter, hence the reason I went with them rather than PK adapter or actually converting my lenses.

I do shoot OM on film, hence I wanted to keep my OM lenses from mods.

Oh sorry, yes I see the Canon on the flickr page (I get them mixed up sometimes ) That is good to know, may have to consider finding an old Canon for that purpose, looks like they are reasonable. I am the same way, I do not want to hack the lens mounts on the old OM lenses.
