Nice Lens at a great price

  • Excerpt: I normally stick with prime lenses, but have missed having a telephoto. For the price, this lens is impressively sharp and has good contrast. At its best outdoors in daylight, using a monopod or tripod to steady it. Using it on my OM-D EM-5. As other reviews stated, it is plastic, but it adjusts smoothly enough and does not creep. The upside of the plastic is its a very lightweight lens.

Excellent value

  • Excerpt: For what it is, namely an inexpensive zoom telephoto lens, this is a very good choice for the Olympus OM-D series. It is a great supplement to the kit lens (extends your range into the telephoto), but don't forget to get a nice fast prime lens as well.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Inexpensive

Good solution for the cost

  • Summary: The Lumix Micro 4/3 body is now my carry-around camera because it's small, light and yields excellent quality. This lens extends my reach but does it at the expense of lens speed. That keeps cost down, of course, but be prepared to work at higher ISOs and slower shutter speeds.

Overlooked value

  • Excerpt: For the price, the lens body is no surprise. It's plastic and composite materials. The mount to the camera body is not metal. The lens shade must be purchased separately. BUT the optics exceed expectations. Sharp right up to the edge. Auto focus is fast. This is THE telephoto lens I will bring with me when I travel outside the country. It's so cheap it's almost disposable. It's so good it's almost pro quality.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Optics, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing

Slight compromises in feel, but good lens worth it's price

Nathan, Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this lens a month and haven't used it all that much yet. So far, I am very pleased with it; images look great, lens is affordable, it's lightweight... I also have the 12-50 and 25 1.8 which are both great lenses (5 of 5 stars.) Focal range aside, this lens feels a little different from them mainly in build quality. Let me start by saying I think the build quality is fine. This one feels cheaper.
