Summary: I am using this lens with Olympus adapter MMF-3 (weather sealed) on Olympus E-M1 with firmware v1.4 and the autofocus is working incredible fast and accurate, with wonderful results, very sharp and with great colors. If you search for a while you can get a used lens at very good price.
Summary: This is an amazing wide-angle zoom, especially for architecture or interiors because it is perfectly rectilinear at all focal lengths. Beats the equivalent Nikon, Canon and Sigma models easily. The bonus...it's 'splash proof' so you won't be afraid to take it outside in rain/snow/spray etc.
Excellent Wide Angle Lens with almost no distortion

Summary: UPDATE 06/28/2014 took this lens along with my old E-520 on a trip and it performed great. Polarizing filter can get quite expensive if you start buying for different filter sizes. I bought a cheap downsizing ring adapter from 77mm to 72mm and used my Hoya 77mm filter. Results are excellent.
Summary: This lens is frequently overlooked,especially since the introduction of the 12-60mm lens. This is a nice lens with little distortion. I use it for landscapes. I also own the 12-60mm, and while there is a lot of overlap, the 11-22mm has noticeably less distortion in its range.
Excerpt: This is a very nice high-grade lens, albeit somewhat overlooked after the introduction of the 12-60mm high-grade lens. It is fast and has little distortion. I picked up a used copy to use with the scuba kit, but I also use it on hikes in the mountains in and around Tahoe.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Going through the reviews of this lens, I noticed that no one has reviewed this lens in over four years. This very fine high grade lens is frequently overlooked--the introduction of the Zuiko 12-60mm a few years ago rendered the 11-22mm a little hard to justify.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
Summary: Very little distortion, useful range, sharp, fast, comes with hood and pouch in the box. A proper hood is ESSENTIAL, not an extra! Some makers force you to pay for one! Pretty good into the light and has survived a fall and MANY splashes with no apparent loss of quality.
Excerpt: This lens is a scene photographer's dream! A near ultra-wide to near standard field of view lens in one weather resistant relatively fast package. I'm amazed at the sharpness of small distant objects and lack of all the well known distortions in this lens.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Low distortion, Rugged, Strong Construction, Very useful focal length
