Excerpt: Use this lens on a Olympus OMD EM-10 when I need a bit more reach toward a subject. In good to strong light the lens works quite well with nice sharp images. In weaker light the focus point tends to hunt a bit but that is the tradeoff one makes with a slow, inexpensive lens.
Excerpt: Two days in and I am impressed with this lens on my Pocket cinema camera. First off, it is sharp. Did not expect that from a $ (on sale) lens. No lens creep is a major plus. Haven't pixel peeped and probably won't, so I'm not sure about CA's. Feels cheap, plastic mount. Don't care about that either.
Summary: So, what can you expect out of a 40-150mm zoom on a micro 4/3 system, which can be had for $120 or less on a regular basis? Frankly, more than you might expect. Let's get the bad over with. This thing is chintzy. It is all plastic. It feels like a toy in hand.
Excerpt: I admit it. I purchased this lens going by the reviews and had my doubts. Even when I got it out of the box I thought what a mistake I made. Wow, what a surprise I had when I snapped a few pictures. The pictures were surprisingly good. I don't know how it does it, but the reviews are correct.
Excerpt: I use this lens for traveling to get a little extra reach. It is small and very light.....great for traveling. It is not super sharp, but more than adequate for smaller prints or internet photos. although I think you could get a very nice 8x10 or 11x14 inch prints.
