Just acquired this lens and didn't see a thread for it, so I followed suit.
Well Started - here are a couple from me . .
It's a great lens!
Both shot with the OMD
All the best

That bridge shot is stunning!
M9-P, EM-5, RX100, Rolleiflex MX
It seems to be a fine lens.

Here I have a quick shot I took while walking around. It was handheld with the GH3 and 35-100mm f/2.8 @ 2.8. I have the slightly original size (cropped thinner) and a crop from the bottom.
Impressive lens and photos!
Jono - how is the ergonomics with the 30-100mm on the OM-D?
No doubt, this lens is a stellar performer!
Life is an ever changing journey
I should add that I do use half of the Olympus vertical grip. ie not the bit that includes an additional battery. However I would imagine that the bare body would also handle the 100-300 very well.
I use it handheld for wildlife photography, a really great lens.

Here's a shot of the Hollywood sign. All the way in at 100mm and f/2.8 handheld. Heavily cropped and torqued in Lightroom 4.
Here's a shot of a coyote. This was handheld while sitting in my car so not very stable and not very much light. 100mm f/2.8. Bent in Lightroom 4.
I really like the last sunset picture. The Coyote is also good.
Here's a brown pelican I shot in Santa Barbara. All shot at with the f/2.8.
Cam: Panasonic Lumix GH3
Lens: Lumix G X Vario 35-100 f/2.8 @ f/2.8
I like this lens a lot. I wish the 12-35 was f1.4 or I would buy it as well. Here are some samples from the 35-100 on a GH3.

On a OM-D, at F4 or F5.6 can this lens replace the Oly 45/1.8 and the Oly 75/1.8
I own both the 45 and 75 now and shoot them both at F4 95% of the time.
Or are the Oly primes still sharper?
I have the Panasonic 12-35, and I'm about ready to get the 35-100. At that point I can shoot some significant portion of my work assignments with the Micro 4/3 system. A quarter? Half? Not sure, but it's going to be a huge help for my poor old aching back. I'm already shooting all my stitched panos with the GH2 and the 12-35 using the smallest (and lightest) Nodal Ninja model. Nice little kit, and the results are excellent.
Managed to find a used lens at a very fair price, so jumped at it.
So far I am very impressed with it. It seems to focus fast enough for most things.
This is a crop taken at f2.8 on the OM-D.
A little while later the weather changed:

Every year from about Feb 15 to the end of Feb, Horsetail Falls, on the face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park lights up at the end of day if it is not cloudy in the Central Valley. If the falls are really going it looks like a lava flow. This year, not much water, but a nice light and a good environment for the 35-100. The second picture is Bobcat hunting voles at dusk also in Yosemite.

@ceklund great shots of the falls, does look like lava. Bobcat shot is also a terrific one.
Here are a couple of shots I took in Santa Monica using the 35-100 f/2.8 at 2.8. There are a couple more in my latest blog post at www.ThePhotoSoup.com
Queensland Water-lillies. New flowers recently installed in our meditation-billabong-converted-swimming-pool. Mid-day sun with Lumix 35-100 @ 100mm

If you haven't yet heard of the Brenizer Method, you must YouTube it. Here's my first attempt. Not bad, but I definitely didn't capture the essence of the effect. Shot with the GH3 & 35-100mm @ 100mm f/2.8. This is a before and after to show the difference.
I am seeing some really nice images on this thread while using the 35-100/2.8 lens.
Are there any limitations when using this lens on a OM-D as opposed to the GH-3 in terms of functionality, focusing, etc.
I don't own an OM-D or have every used one, but from my understanding. Any lens made natively for the m4/3 system should work like normal on any m4/3 body. Case in point, I've used Olympus lenses on my GH3 flawlessly. The only thing you're going to want to do is turn the 'in-lens' stabilization off since the OM-D has it's own in body.
I'm considering this lens, and Panasonic has it discounted by $300 (in the US at least). I'm just wondering if the folks that own this lens are happy with it and would purchase it again? I have the 12-35 and it's my favorite lens.
