Excerpt: I wanted a versatile lens to go with my OM D EM5 markII and was willing to wait for the mark II version to be released. I've used this lens to take almost every shot I can think of from almost macro to sunrise. it does everything fairly well.
Excerpt: I love this sense. I had the previous one, and was excited to get the weather sealed one. Keep in mind what this lens is for. It wasn't made for portrait or macro photography. So for what it is, it is great, light, and takes great pictures. Great all around lens. GO Olympus!
Excerpt: I use this lens with my Olympus OMD EM10. Last summer in Glacier National Park I was going back and forth between shooting landscapes versus wild life with the 12- 40 and the 40 to 150 lenses, and missing some shots. I heard about the forthcoming 14 to 150 len.
Excerpt: Small, Solid Build, Good Optical Performance. This is a great walk around lens if you want to go extremely light. The optical performance is quite good, but not in the same league as lenses like the Olympus 12-40 Pro. I didn't expect it to be, but it is still very good. Quick AF.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to give me a little more reach than my 14-40 pro lens, which stays on my camera most of the time. I have not had the lens very long, and sometimes B&H asks for reviews before we have had the opportunity to use the equipment very much, but what I have seen so far is excellent.
