As good as my 12-40mm
4 weeks ago
Summary: As good as my 12-40mm, with the only draw-back being the AF speed. Built like a tank and solidly constructed. Frankly, I like the build of this lens compared to the 12-40mm, the rubber surface is easier to grip. Picture quality is stellar for a zoom and low light ability is quite good.
Summary: This will ALWAYS be a fantastic lens! Even by today's standards, this is a fantastic lens that few zoom lenses can compete with. Color, contrast and sharpness are simply awesome. 35mm stopped down to f4 is this lens' sweet spot where it's razor sharp across the frame. Some of my best pictures were taken with this lens. You simply can't go wrong picking one of these up for as cheaply as they can be had today in used condition.

Summary: It is worth buying a Higher grade lens, makes shooting a lot better when you can go up and down in F stop properly :D Lens works Great on my Olympus E-5 and the E-620 If you have not bought a Good Lens buy this one! (this is for wide shots and mildly close shots wont zoom super far as its only 14-54 but it does that perfectly) If you want to take Sports Photos, Get the 50-200 and F/2.8
Olympus 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II Zuiko Digital review by attila_feher
8 September 2014
Summary: I have used it extensively on my old Olympus E-510 with excellent results. I guess it was supposed to be the "poor-man's 12-60" but it is far more compact than the 12-60 and it has a pretty similar zoom, maybe a tad more restrictive on the wide end. Additionally, it turned out to be a "future-proof" investment, as it works fine on the contrast-detect AF system (CDAF) on the micro-four-third (MFT) cameras.
Pros: Good zoom range and IQ, not too big for its class, fast phase-detect AF, reasonably fast CDAF, DxO support on MFT cameras
Cons: currently nothing (DxO support for MFT just added)
Best lens l have put on my E-420 Olympus camera so far and the best value .

Summary: The lens I bought on E-Bay for my Olympus camera was for shooting landscapes and it works very well over any kit lens . Low light shooting is great with this lens also. Put one in your kit are you will be a happy camper. Zuiko Digital || F/2.8-3.5 || Lens is worth up grading to on your camera .
