Excerpt: Purchased this for my daughter's Olympus OMD EM-10 to complement her 12-40 f2.8 Pro, also a great lens. I wanted her to experience shooting with a fast prime and a setup that would make the camera more grab it and go friendly. It has certainly delivered.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Value
Excerpt: I just replaced my lens which was stolen and I am so delighted to have my familiar friend back on my camera. I use it for street photography often shooting without looking through the camera. The Olympus image stabilization along with the ability to focus on faces without my interference is a gift.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: I was a 24mm (equivalent) focal length guy. Wide-angle = storytelling. I mean, even a 24mm was a giving up of some of the love I used to feel for my old 17-35mm (equivalent) f/2.8. But one day I finally got tired of that wider angle distorting faces on the edge of my frame.
A must own for any micro four-thirds system owners.

Summary: This lens is fantastic. If you are using a micro four-thirds system, this lens must be a part of your kit. Great on the streets with it's quick autofocus, and compact design. The manual focusing clutch works a treat, and the fast maximum aperture is fantastic in low light situations.
Excerpt: Note: Review based on first impressions after having the lens for a few weeks. Positive - Small size, easy to carry - Great in low light/night settings - Sharp pictures Negative - Have not found major issues yet
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
