A good lens, but I ordered in error.

  • Summary: Bear in mind, this is four-thirds and NOT micro 4/3. I made the same mistake, but was unable to resell it on Amazon because there is already a surplus of these. Had to hunt around but was able to find an affordable aftermarket adapter.

not to bad...

  • Excerpt: I like the compact design of this lens. It's not the best in low light but certainly not the worse. One thing I'm not a fan of is the screw on front lens cover. But overall its a decent lens. I'm not excited about it but definitely not unhappy about it.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Tough To Attach

Good reason to show brand loyalty

  • Excerpt: A valuable lense to have in one's arsenal being a photography enthusiast. It is great for low to medium range shots, including portraits of objects and people where telefoto, wide-angles and zooms are not essential, saving their adjustments and time to change.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

size does matter

  • Excerpt: love the size it's really small and lightweight, nice construction, metal mount, good IQ better than kit lens. the only reason why i ranked it 1 star short is because in low light situations f2.8 comes a little short for me as i dont want to bump ISO more than 1600, but again for the price of 200+...

While this Olympus normal lens is not as fast as the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or as sharp and contrasty as the Leica (exact length and speed escapes me just now, but faster than 2.8 and 46-49º AOV), it is a winning performer, on price, compactness, and...
