Favorite Olympus Pen lens

Hi all,

I was wondering what your favorite lens is for the Olympus Pen F(t,v) camera is and why. Post some examples if you like. My examples are still going through Photoshop, but my favorite lens so far is the simple 38mm lens. The reason I love it is that it is sharp, has a wonderful bokeh (at least for me) and the close focusing is amazing.

I also have the 20mm and 150mm, but I don't use them nearly as much as this 38mm. What about you?

I have the 100/3.5, 40/1.4, and 25/2.8. Sold my 38mm along with an extra body. All of them are top-notch, can't choose one as favorite

Feel free to see samples in this flickr set from all the above lenses.

Thank you, I'd have to dig out my archive box to get what film exactly, that was when I started shooting film, not documenting my stuff well back then

I know it's not slide, and it has to be an expired something, maybe a Kodak Gold 200.

I like my 40/f1.4 lense. Only slightly larger than the 38mm, but I find it much easier to frame. The fact it's pin-sharp is just a slight bonus...
