Hi Nathan,

This lens does the job, so does the E3.

 From your results and Steve's I am considering the purchase of that 
lense again - hence sticking to 4/3 - thanks for the input - helps in 
times of doubt. :-)

Life in Alicante seems fairly pleasant from what I see, you lucky people
Bien amicalement
