Summary: Slow lens even for a low end DSLR, lasted two weeks before focus stopped working. Expect better than that from Olympus and after reading all the reviews elsewhere I see that it is a common problem, would not be so bad if we could even manual focus but it will not and as with all major manufacturer's they no longer have local repair so you have to pay to ship for repairs. No more Olympus for us.
Excerpt: I used this lens with a Oly e-520 and honestly found it to only function moderately better than the 14-42mm kit lens. Given the massive price difference, I didn't find it at all worth it and in the end returned it to upgrade the camera body instead. It may be a better buy for the e-620.
Excerpt: I have an Olympus Evolt E 300 and this lens does not work with that camera eventhough it is specifically listed in the camera's manuel. I have contacted [...] and Olympus. They both think that I need to update the firmware on the camera but neither can help me get that done since I use an Apple computer at home. My next call is to Apple. Basically, the old Olympus software doesn't work with the newer Apple operating system.
