Very decent lens (at the right price)

  • Excerpt: I've owned this lens for 6 months and taken a few hundred photos with it. I got it discounted along with the OMD EM-10. It is a nice lens for anyone moving up from a Point & Shoot camera. It is NOT a professional grade lens as any of the many reviewers will tell you.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great all-around lens.

  • Summary: I really can't understand the complaints about this kit lens. For the price it gives you an incredible number of features. Yes it is slow at the tele end, but if you need a fast portrait lens, pick one up! Or save up for the 12-40 2.8.

Best option (at this price) for Blackmagic Studio Camera

Director Mark, B&H Photo
14 June 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Good Optically
  • Cons: Slow, Slow max aperture

Works for me

  • Summary: It may not be the very best lens as far as resolution, but it's not bad, and close focuses too. A larger f stop would be nice, but that's going to add a lot of weight. I'll use this.

Great, but a tad slow

Martin, olympusamerica.com
3 April 2015
  • 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.

A good all purpose lens

  • 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

aabsdb, Ebay
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.
