Summary: Pros Compact size means you can easily fit an E-M10 body and this lens (separate) in your pocket. Respectable build and optics quality. Used it for many months and it served me well from portraits to landscape and even night as well.
Excerpt: Very useful as a small zoom lens on an E-P5. Not up to the standards of the 12-40mm f/2.8, but I don't think I would ever use that lens on an E-P5 or similar small camera. Surprisingly high quality for a kit zoom and a great deal with the discounts available when we purchased an E-P5.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Small
It is a kit lens, get with the camera, but I would not just buy it.

Summary: I got the Olympus Pen EPM2 kit and it came with this lens. PROS: 1. A big positive for this lens, is the small size. This lens is tiny, the pictures do not let you understand how small this lens is. 2.
Summary: This lens is somewhat difficult to review, because for the price it's great! It definitely out performs it's price point. Seriously for $100.00 it's an outstanding lens, but as you add more lenses it will probably send more and more time at the bottom of your camera bag.
