Overlooked value

Adorama
1 November 2014
  • 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

  • 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.

This lens is surprisingly good for the price

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is surprisingly good for the price. I'm always pleasantly surprised at how many "keepers" I get when I shoot with this lens. Probably one of the best values in micro 4/3 lenses. It does have a cheap feel to it as it seems to be almost entirely plastic, but that can be an advantage in terms of weight. Recommended.

Very Happy

  • Excerpt: I love the weight of this lens and its optics are very clear. Shooting this at 85mm and at the lowest aperture setting the corners of the image are crisp and clear. I very useful lens to have added to my arsenal of lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
