Buying just one lens? This is the one!

Nathan, Amazon

  • 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. I have owned multiple systems and this is by far the versatile lens I have ever owned. I didn't expect to love this lens as much as I do.

Excellent product!

  • Summary: Excellent lens and value for the money!Functions exactly as advertised. Pleasantly surprised. Wanted the lens for an overseas trip with my new OM-D E-10. Would have been nice to receive a manual with the lens, but can figure it out on my own. Lens is nice and light without appearing cheap or flimsy. I have been an Olympus fan since the original OM-1 (which I still have). I always appreciated the smaller footprint of the Olympus line of cameras.

Affordable, and Weather Sealed and Versatile

  • Summary: Just received it last night about 7:30 so it was getting dark. I opened it attached to the OMD 5 and ran outside to check it out. Some might shake their head reading my review but I am not a photographer or have deep knowledge over mm or f stops. My use of the camera is for personal reasons, although I have done weddings baby showers and photo shows for those who couldn't aford one, but do it because I have a love of taking photos What I first thought of when I attached...

When compared to other kit lenses, this 12-50mm shines

Adrian, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: My overall impression of the 12-50mm lens is that it's pretty good. Many people give it a low rating, but it depends what you compare it to and your expectations. Most kit lenses for m4/3 and DSLR's are 28-80mm (in 35mm format) affairs, usually made of plastic. Images are usually adequate, but not nearly as sharp as more expensive zoom and prime lenses. Aperture is usually 3.5-5.6 - nothing special at all. Pentax adds weather sealing, Canon has USB focus motor.

Best kit lens I've seen

Camera Gadget Kid, B&H Photo
29 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm surprised there have been no reviews since 2012 since this is still being shipped out with the EM-5, which is still being made. I guess the reviews are part of the EM-5 reviews. My overall impression of the 12-50mm lens is that it's pretty good. Many people give it a low rating, but it depends what you compare it to, and your expectations. Most kit lenses for m4/3 and DSLR's are 28-80mm (in 35mm format) affairs, usually made of plastic.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Reliable
