I just acquired an O2 set up that I am going to use to aerate my wort. Which does everybody prefer the .5 micron or 2 micron stainless diffusion stone. Any input is appreciated before I purchase.

Some opinions were provided in this (much later) post; I thought I'd link the two threads in case anyone does a search later on down the road.

If you are using an aquarium pump, you have to use a 2. If you are using Ox, get the .5.

I have a similar thread going on the same subject. I think I'll be going with a 2micron stone for an oxygen setup. I really don't feel like messing with a clogged stone all the time and the 2micron stone comes with a SS wand already attached. I can't see a 2micron stone taking that much longer.
