Excerpt: I bought this lens just after I got the new Lumix G7 with kit lens 14-42mm. I needed something immediately for a upcoming gig (run and go) and I didn't want bring my heavy beloved Nikon lenses. Also I didn't want to invest in a new expensive Panasonic Vario zoom.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: I was not expecting much from this lens but the price was right. Just getting into four thirds. Been shooting Nikon DSLR's for a long time. This is only my 2nd lens not including the kit lens which I am not counting (I am really am not happy with).
Excerpt: After years of shooting Canon APS-c, six months ago I purchased an Olympus E-M1 with the Oly 12-40 f2.8 PRO. That lens is really impressive. I love it.I wanted a longer lens and have been tempted to go for the 40-150 PRO, but the cost, size and weight have given me pause.
Excerpt: Know that you get what you pay for. a lot of plastic, but the glass is clean and sharp. Nice range and good shallow DOF even at f5.6 when zoomed to 150mm (300mm = to FX or 35mm film). minimum focus is far away however this doesn't say anything about macro. A filter set can help close that gap.
Summary: Others have said it more eloquently than I could, but I want to reiterate that this lens is completely amazing. The super-telephoto reach lets you grab those far off shots that would normally be missed, and it's also great for nature/flower photography.
Great deal & great photos of South African Wildlife

Summary: I've had this and tried it out abroad for a little over a month. I can say that this lens is great! It's not so long that you constantly get image stabilization problems, but it's long enough for wildlife that's distant. It's a great deal.
