Excerpt: * Excellent performer<br />* Works great on my E-P3 with Panasonic adapter.<br /><br />My first words after the first shots with this lens were: " wow... this is really, really good"<br /><br />After using it for a while my opinion is "yeap... this is really, really good"<br /><br />Excellent resolution, contrast, and colors; also, it's small, and light; on top of that, works great on the E-P3 (and I guess the same applies to the E-M5 and E-P5).
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: ------------ Bottom-line ------------ * Excellent performer * Works great on my E-P3 with Panasonic adapter. ------------ Details ------------ My first words after the first shots with this lens were:" wow... this is really, really good" After using it for a while my opinion is "yeap...
Summary: I've only used it a couple of times so far, but the results have been great! I'm hoping Olympus pulls through with at least one last 4/3 dslr camera this fall (the E-7 is something I've been waiting for). If you have any E System cameras, this is definitely a lens to add to your collection!
Summary: This lens is good to own for these reasons: It is small and light; it give image quality that is as good as more expensive lenses; it is fast enough at 2.8 to allow available light shooting; it gives the same perspective as the human eye. With this lens you will take your SLR when you might otherwise leave it at home. Add a wide angle such as the 9-18 and a telephoto such as the 40-150 and you have all you need for 98% of picture taking.
Summary: excellent lens, of course it is not made for the Olympus PEN E-PM1 Mini, get this for that it is very possible to make mistakes with this lens, if you use a digital Olympus Four Thirds Adapter MMF-2 will have in hand an excellent tool to take pictures with this great lens, I can assure you, it is a bit expensive but worth it, and the price of the adapter will not break your wallet.
Good small cheap lens, good and sharp picture quality and great for trips.

Summary: I needed a small lens for quick trips. I don't like that you have to buy the hood separately, but I do like that the hood is made of metal, still the hood is somewhat expensive. I use it with my e-420, they are made for each other. Is not as sharp as my 50mm f2, but I think is better than the 14-42mm (which I think is really good for a kit lens) at the 25mm range.
Excerpt: I'm most thrilled that with this lens on the camera, that I don't draw too much attention to myself and the camera, as I did with my 14-54 plus lens hood on. I find using a normal focal length lens very versatile and now have this as my walkaround lens. Of course, it would have been nice if Olympus made a f2.0, but hey, you get what you pay for, and I think this lens is overall a great value.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
