Not Bad for the price

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.
Summary: I got this lens in order to get my pictures from a different perceptive and since I only have two other lens a macro and a single mirror lens this is the lens I use a lot for great landscape photo's.
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.
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.
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.
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..
