Did some digging and found a user  or two in a different mount.  (No, I do not 
work for Cosina) There seems to be very few of these around. Had to go look on 
a CVUG users group . Perhaps it at least should be added to the pantheon of 
great macro lenses available for Oly.  
The complexion in the portrait is ruddy, though I assume that is the Velvia.  
Maybe it is too sharp wide open   (if that is even possible) given the MTF 
curves and thus perhaps the bokeh is not as nice as the Z. 90 F2. You judge.

"The lens is bright at f2.5 max aperture which is good for focusing. 
You'll have to make your own mind up on things such as 'bokeh' etc. At 
times i've photographed things wide open in the shade with highlights in 
the background and these stand out, but they aren't necessarily good 
photos to start with. I've taken hundreds of macro photos with the lens. 
It is sharp and I love it!  If you know any of the Voigtlander lenses 
made by Cosina you'll know how good the glass is. This lens is well 
worth getting. I am not dissapointed one bit.

here's a couple of shots with the lens. Though I remind you that you are 
looking at low resolution jpeg images on a computer monitor so I 
wouldn't see it as a lens test."
