Best option (at this price) for Blackmagic Studio Camera

Excerpt: My first MFT lens, and purchased for the Blackmagic Studio Camera. It's one of the very few lenses that work well with this camera and the zoom servo, aperture and focus can all be controlled fully via the BM ATEM software. In addition, the zoom works with my Libec LANC Zoom Controller fully.
Summary: This is one misunderstood lens. A good performer overall, with slight soft corners wide open, but still a stellar lens stopping it down a bit. But I don't really care for stopping down a lens, specially this one, since is so slow, so I most of the time shoot wide open, unless I'm taking Macro, which...
Very nice weather sealed lesn with macro capabilities

Summary: This lens covers a very userful 24mm (35mm equivalent) to 100mm focal length. This focal length is ideal for most photography. Being weather sealed helps. Keep in mind that you need a weather sealed body as well such as the EM5 or EM1. There is a macro mode which is surprisingly good.
Summary: I got this lens as a kit lens bundled with my EM-5. All in all it is a good lens. Good things about it: 1. It is a durable lens, weather, splash and dust proof is a great feature. I had some chances taking photos in a super snowy winter night, with this lens, I am worry free.
Good lens that has become my primary walk around lens
1 November 2014
Summary: I purchased this as my primary walk around lens for my OM-D E-M5. While I own a Pan Lumix 14-42 (which is lighter and smaller) I wanted the weather seal the Oly provides along with the additional reach.
Summary: This is a good all around lens, not super sharp like a prime, but has a good focal range. The Macro Mode is a plus, it is not 1:1 but with the x2 crop it gets you real close(I use macro rings to get even closer). I was on a budget and wanted a good multipurpose walk around lens.
