GREAT LENS $for$
7 January 2015
Summary: this one in particular is a wonderful little lens. i have owned all the versions of this lens and they are all great lenses for their price point. they all have the ability to deliver super sharp images in the right hands. one would be hard pressed to find a low dollar lens any better.
Summary: I like it a lot as a lens kit comes with the camera however I won't pay more than $150 for this lens. I paid $99 for it with the purchasing of the OM-D E-M5. I think it's a reasonable price. I used this type lens before with a Pen PL2 but with the OM-D E-M5, it produce a better photos. You can take a look of the first bath of photos I took with my brand new OM-D E-M5.
Summary: Very good quality lens for the money. Please notice that the picture of this product is in his close possition, so when you are going to take a picture, you need to move the focus ring until it reach his normal position to start focusing, and it will be more than half centimeter larger. I use it for my Panasonic LX 7, as my normal all around lens (85% of my shots).
Summary: This is the kit lens supplied with most of the Olympus micro four-thirds cameras. It is wonderfully matched to those cameras, and except for the most demanding of applications, easily substitutes for a bag full of primes. Image quality is very good throughout the zoom range. Chromatic aberrations are well-controlled, and what little distortion there is is well-compensated for through in-camera processing.
Summary: Great Lens! The size and usefulness is a value to my camera. I wanted to have a lens that could be the main lens and have a variable focal length. that way I would keep the camera set up simple. I would think this Micro four thirds would be a great addition to anyone.
