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.
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.
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.
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.
