Great lens and wonderful bank for the buck in short tele lens.

  • Summary: This is a nice short tele for either the Olympus or Panasonic micro 4/3 cameras. Picture quality sharpness is excellent and color and character are very very nice at all focal lengths. Pixel peepers may have some issues but if you print from this lens and compare it to any other lens of the same focal length very very few people could tell which lens took which picture. This is a light weight lens and works extremely well on my Pany G5 camera without OIS (handheld).

Perfect For Starting Collection

  • Excerpt: After buying a new MFT system I needed a telephoto lens. This was a winner for the price.Good zoom range and descently sharp photos for cheap. AF is a bit sluggish but is not poor and still works fine. In good light it focuses well but not at super-speeds. Performance in AF drops with the amount of available light but that is no surprise. I can't figure out how to MF with this lens. Maybe I'm missing something? Chromatic aberration is noticeable while pixel peeping.

Light, sharp, solid

  • Excerpt: This lens fills in the spot between my Panasonic 12-32mm kit lens and the Olympus 75-300mm long tele zoom I purchased last month. On the Panasonic GM1 there is no image stabilization, but I am finding the lack of mirror slap and with electronic shutter, I still consistently get sharp handheld photos at moderate shutter speeds. In this case at shutter speeds of 1/30th second at the 40mm end and of 1/100th of a second at the 150mm end.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Interchangeable, Fast AF, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
  • Cons: No IS
