Pancake lens

  • Excerpt: While the lens is certainly light and useful for toting around, it's hard to mount, not easy to uncover (lens cover screws on) and the bokeh effect wasn't nearly what I had hoped. It does take great pictures but I would recommend it only if you were using it on a second camera.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Light and thin (with downsides)

  • Summary: Very soft at wide open, sharpens very slightly when stopped down. I'm not a fan of "electronic" manual focus. I discovered that the focus ring actually turns endlessly, of course not that much if you have achieved focus, but it does go on in circles without ever stopping.

Small Size Is The Key Feature

Ken, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The small size and light weight of this lens are the only reasons to consider buying this lens. Optically, it's not the excellent lens that previous reviews would lead you to believe. Quite the contrary. Chromatic aberration (CA) is the biggest problem you'll find.
  • Pros: Compactness, Lightweight
  • Cons: Chromatic Aberrations, Poor lens cap design

Compact & OK

Cashew, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought Summer 09 & run this on an E420 for a compact walkabout. It's ok, moderately sharp and good for candid snaps open wide. No better combination of price/portability I could identify really on an SLR at the time. Still probably better practically then Pen/GF1 when current prices considered.

Convenient

Mr. Javier Diez "J Diez", Amazon
15 September 2008
  • Summary: This lens makes my E-620 almost a (bulky) compact camera, easier to carry around on its own, so this have become my default lens. Being standard means that you can take all kind of conventional pictures, but it's not the ideal choice for other more specific types of photography.
