Summary: For the focal length and resolution, this lens suits my needs. An equivalent of 600 mm (if it were a full frame 35 mm lens) gives me enough magnification to use for most photos, and I can crop more to get closer when there was enough light when taking the photo. It's not tiny, & weighs just under 1 pound, but for me and wildlife, it's worth it.
Excerpt: Quality looks sharp. As it's slow, I do thank technology that allows me to kick up film speed to assist with shutter speeds. For a lense with this range vs the cost, find me something comparable. All in all, it's a winner!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Range Weight
Excerpt: Needed a 300mm reach to enable me to convert to micro 4/3 system and this does the trick. Am able to get the same reach with it as I had with my DSLR and a 400mm zoom. Like to photograph birds and other wildlife. Also this lens is much lighter in weight than the 400mm zoom for my DSLR.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Got this for my wife as a birthday present. At first I thought I'd get her the new 40-150 2.8 pro lens but I knew the weight and size of that lens would mean she would leave it home most of the time. This little gem is small enough and light enough that she takes it with her all of the time. Her photos look great. Best of all, she loves it. I'd give it 5 stars if it was a constant F4 but then it would be bigger and heavier.
Summary: Given that every lens is a compromise, within its parameters, this lens is especially sweet! I've worked professionally and have used equipment ranging from pre-war German Rollies to the latest DSLR stuff. I'm now a complete fanboy for Olympus micro 4/3 photography, and without going into a lot of technical jargon (others have done this quite well), I can only say that this lens does not disappoint.
