I used my EM5 and the 12-35 to photograph the local fireworks display. Overall I'd say the combo worked really well. The EM5 easily focused on the bursts. I had wanted to try some longer shutter speeds and change the focus while the shutter was open, but that didn't work out so well. The 12-35 just doesn't work that well for manually focusing - no stops on the focus ring and no distance scale was a problem.

these photos looks really fantastic. really shows what the micro 4/3 can do.
Thanks David - I didn't ride the exposure quite enough on some I got, especially the grand finally where things got really bright, but overall I was pleased with the results.

These were just local lake launch fireworks so not very elaborate... Handheld against my knee for 3 seconds with the Ricoh GR...

Wow Dave, the pic came out great but especially so being hand held - I had a tripod and most of my shots are around 1.5 seconds, f/4.5 and ISO 200.
