Summary: this lens is not that sexy. it comes with the e500 kit, plus the 40-150 telephoto, so it's attractive to dslr newbies. problem is, as soon as you start playing with it for longer than 20 minutes you see it's weak points. build quality is ok, optical quality is decent but not spectacular, and the 14mm (28mm equiv.) is fairly wide, but here's the thing: it's a 5.6 at only 45mm. wtf? the 40-150 is faster at a longer focal length. Houston, we have a problem.
