That kind of performance out of a sometimes scoffed at 35mm lens, is pretty
darn good. I should have plenty of time to test this 645 camera against
other Zuikos such as the 50/1.4 SC and the 50/1.8 SC, but for now I think
it's quite interesting that in the very common enlargement size 8x10, the
"B" performing Zuiko held up fairly well.

I was thumbing a rather nice photo book at my local B&N which was well printed and had photo credits. Mostly I could pick out the 35mm from the 645 and the 4x5. There were enough exceptions to the size/quality difference to make me remember something that Galen Rowell wrote to the effect that many of the perceived differences in format have to do with technique. A large format photographer may check out a sight, look at the site, visualize how he wants to see it, comes back when the light is right with his/her equipment, sets up a camera on the tripod frames his picture, decides about exposure and, finally, exposes the film. The same care with your Olympus may yield stunning results.
