Not Bad for the price

Thebestbobthateverbobbed, B&H Photo
10 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this lens with my Panasonic GH4 for photo/video, and for the price it handles very well. I couldn't believe how small and lightweight it is. Its also plastic, which did not look the case on the photo, but overall its not a bad cheap lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Sharp at shorter focal lengths, ugly bokeh

jl, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Yes, it is inexpensive, and good enough in some circumstances. But the out of focus areas are really, really ugly. It's really only good for distant objects stopped down a bit. If you are photographing something close, and the lens is opened up a bit, the background is going to be ugly ugly ugly -- at least compared to some the the more beautiful mft lenses available, like the oly prime 45 or 60 macro.

Bad shipping experience

Gary S Hill, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: The lens is excellent, my only problem was the 2 weeks it took to get it. It sat in California for 6 days. This wasn't Amazons fault as they weren't the shipper. The Shipper was UPS and they dropped the ball on this one. So my three stars was my shopping experience, not the product.

cheap and light, can't go wrong.

Rico Rivera, B&H Photo
16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It does what it's supposed to, and it's really light. I don't really like telephotos, but I got this just to have around. Image quality is fine; it's not my main lens, so it's good enough. stick it in your camera bag and you'll forget it's there.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Looks Nice Feels Cheap

Not Professional grade but decent

Kenneth J. Hudak, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: This is an up date...this lens worked fine on my E-PM2...but on the E-M1...I find it sluggish and the image quality is not all that good...most images are fairly soft at min . imum aperture but go from f/8 to f/11 and the quality gets better . Post processing will help the images be very acceptable . A little disappointed...wish the autofocus worked a little quicker...but if you want something that is lightweight and has some range..

Nice zoom

alejoprieto, B&H Photo
2 September 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a nice zoom, with good image. It's OK for the money, but if you could pay a little bit more, consider other options. Trying to focus sometime takes forever.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

  • Summary: the motion is not smooth actually quite hard - which reflects poorly on the build quality. Otherwise nice lens to get play around with a zoom.
