Excerpt: Great multifunction lens. Simple zoom, macro, electronic zoom, electronic focus, manual zoom and focus all for a reasonable price. Good for an everyday run around lens! My one minor concern is the zoom control, for the life of me, it seems counter intuitive. But, maybe that is me.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I got this lens with my OM-D E-M5 body, and it is the lens that I use most often, even after purchasing several other lenses. It is handy to have the built-in macro to grab an unexpected shot, and the zoom range makes it a very versatile lens.
Summary: The OM-D E-M5 was my first serious foray into digital from fifty years in film, much of if with Olympus OM and Leica M. Olympus choose wisely in kitting their revolutionary EM-5 with this multi-capable lens.
Summary: I bought this lens used with some trepidation. It was in pristine condition. I love this lens. It's just the right focal length with the extra wide 12mm. To make even better, I ordered a $10.00 "pro series" wide angle (52mm 0.43x) add-on lens that probably extends it to 10 mm at the wide end.
Summary: I am a M43 panasonic user, I got a Olympus OMD E-M5 few months ago with the new Pro 12-40mm lens. I was impressed with some macro photographs I saw taken with this lens. I got a great price and did not hesitate to buy this sense from E-bay. I very happy with my results.
Summary: Bought this instead of the standard 14-42 kit lens and very happy I did. Great lens, no complaints. With the ISO capabilities of Olympus (OM-D E-M10 in my case) this lens is not as slow as reviews gripe about. It can produce some very pleasing bokeh and has an extremely versatile focal range.
