Summary: Great lens, works very well when attached to the E5. Performs well, focuses quickly, by far my favorite over the others that I own. I gave 4 out of 5 because the only thing that I wish was different was the distance marker, wish it were more detailed.
Summary: I bought this lens to adapt onto my PEN EP-2. I think the image quality is very good, although, I mainly wanted to use the lens for making video. Unfortunately, the sound of the auto-focus gears can be heard with the camera's microphone.
Excerpt: Very sharp, fast and heavy. I use an SLR mostly to photograph flat art where I need a better tonal scale than smaller sensors. At around f5 the lightweight, inexpensive kit lens image quality looks about the same so I returned the 14-54.
Excerpt: Without a shadow of doubt a much better, brighter, sharper lens than the usual kit lens. I use this lens for everything from underwater to panoramic and highly recommend it. Great macro (considering it's not a macro lens) and good shadow detail.
