Great Lens but Pricey

Jason, B&H Photo
11 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Great Lens but pricey. The 12-40mm Pro is a better value, but this lens is much smaller. The build of this lens does feel solid. No lens hood.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

A Favorite

  • Excerpt: this Oly 12 is fast becoming my favorite, alongside the Oly 45. Great construction, useful focal length, small size, wonderful image quality. It's not for everything, but great for travel, indoors, landscape. it's such a sweet lens, I'm afraid my Oly 17 is going to get jealous!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

A 24mm equivalent that's worth buying, but a little pricey

Sandia Keith, Amazon

  • Summary: I might have a different opinion of this lens, based on physics rather than price. Wide angle lenses, and this is borderline ultrawide, are just never going to be as sharp in the corners as their longer cousins.

21 July 2014

  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged

Very nice expensive wide angle micro four thirds lens

gatorheadLuis, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a great wide angle 24mm equivalent lens for micro four thirds. This lens is perfect for those who like to only shoot prime lenses and are looking for a sharp wide angle lens. I owned this lens but eventually sold it when I replaced it with the 12-35mm panasonic zoom.

A Recommended Lens for the MFT System

EHK, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased this lens from Amazon as I was looking for a wide angle lens, suitable for landscape and low light with bright aperture and of high quality glass. The Oly 12mm f2.0 lens is the one considering you accept the fact that this is a single focal length.

perfect but expensive

cocobronco2519, Ebay
15 February 2013
  • Summary: The best 24mm lens(in 35mm format)with high image quality and construction. At f/2, it is possible to shot handheld in the night. However, the lens is considered expensive. If you are a zoom lens fan goes Lumix 12-35/2.8 or 14/2.5 for much more economic choice.

A Must Buy

Denrod, B&H Photo
8 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Excellent center sharpness with just a hint of corner softness wide open. The corner softness goes away completely by F4.0. Some CA and shading which go away when you stop down and in any case can be fixed in post processing. The snap focus feature is unique and very functional.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
