This is indeed a great, little lens! Since I bought it, 2 months ago, it has been attached to my GM1 without fail, and I have taken all my pictures (landscape, people, street) with it with great results. See my review at my blog, with lots of pictures from the Spanish Pyrenees in bright summer:

This is the lens I have been waiting for. Excellent contrast and good sharpness across the aperture range. It will replace my Olympus 17mm f/1.8 as my compact walk around lens and environmental portrait lens.

I have this lens for a month now and I realy, realy like it. The sharpness is great and the contrast is so beautiful. Much better than the lifeless flat images that the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 produces. Straight from the widest aperture al large portion of the image is wonderfully sharp and the contrast is excellent too. Stop down to f/2.8 and this lens becomes even sharper!! After the first few shots, my Olympus was on eBay for the next unhappy owner. I love the build quality of the 15mm. Metal, metal, metal, a well dampened focus ring and a very useful (and sexy) aperture ring. Wow, this lens is my best buy of 2014 for sure.

What do you mean “lots of plastic parts”? Everything on the outside including the filter ring is metal. I think you missed it?
