WARNING: Not for Micro 4/3 cameras

  • Excerpt: I am rating on my experience with Adorama. As a novice MFT owner, I was unaware of the difference between 4/3 and MFT. No explicit warning was provided. The sad result was running up bill for shipping, for the return and for overnight for a replacement lens.

  • Excerpt: The zooming is sticky and grabs, especially when doing it slowly trying to frame a photo. Otherwise it is compact, light and sharp. I checked online and this appears to be an occasional known problem with this lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Design

  • Summary: This little thing is a BIG DEVIL!! 100% Amazing, but I don't gonna a buy the Lens Hood after paying more than 600 grands for this lens. Bad business for Olympus & I hope you don't buy it either! Saludos, Allan.

Should be zero stars for this lens

  • Excerpt: This Olympus lens does not autofocus on my (or my friend's) Panasonic G2 camera. I've sent it twice to Olympus for "service". I have been told by Olympus service that the lens autofocuses on an Olympus camera, and that an Olympus lens can be guaranteed to work only on an Olympus camera.
  • Cons: Incompatible w Panasonic
