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 .
Summary: Let's start by just getting this out of the way. I think this is an awesome lens! GENERAL OVERALL IMPRESSION I just received my new Olympus OMD EM-1 (replacing my OMD EM-5) and I was anxious to try some Olympus Four Thirds glass on the camera. (I also had purchased the MMF-3 4/3 Adapter). After a few days of significant research, I settled on this little gem. OTHER THOUGHTS I spent most of yesterday using this lens with my EM-1 and I am very happy with the results.
Perfect travel lens for the Olympus OM-D with MMF3 adapter!

Summary: I have earlier reviewed the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ Lens V314040BU000 that comes with the OM-D (which I still recommend). From an optics standpoint, the main difference between the Zuiko 14-54mm II lens and the M.Zuiko 12-50mm lens is the wider aperture (F/2.8-3.5 vs F/3.5-6.3) which makes it much more useable in low light. However, this lens is also sharper, and is capable of noticeably better (more nuanced) color rendition, than the 12-50mm.
If bought new it is worth the money - better yet, if U get an ebay deal

Summary: Great option for the Panasonic GH3/micro 4/3. This is a great walk-around lens. I use this with a micro 4/3'rds adapter on the GH3 (generic adapter was $59 online). Auto-focus works very well - it is slightly slower than the native micro 4/3 lenses, but good enough for me. This is larger and heavier than most micro 4/3rds lenses, but it balances well on the GH3, which prevents jerky motions while shooting video or stills. The image quality is very good.
Summary: I just needed a replacement lens for the latest one I broke. These lenses don't hold up well when dropped. This one arrived in good shape, well wrapped, had a filter on it that I didn't expect, nice covers and was clean. Quality purchase.
Excerpt: I am a "beginner" with my Olympus E-620, but my pictures are great with this lens. The lens is heavier then the kit lens that came with the E-620, and there is some shadow effect when using the built in flash, but the quality of the lens and the ability to take available light pics and not use the flash makes up for that short coming. I am pleased with the lens and would recommend it to others.
