I was looking at that one the other day and do have it jotted down as a possibility. ES has a 26/62 that might be worth considering especially if i catch it on sale.

ES62 26mm is a nice EP. I had it for a while but sold because I prefer ES68 24mm. There is always a better EP if you are willing to pay more. :)
