Good but not great

  • Summary: The lens is fine, but a 7 - 18 would be much better. It isn't quite wide enough for all purposes. I really don't lock the unlock feature. I find it annoying and I am not sure why they have it. Picture quality, build and focus is as expected with all Olympus lenses, excellent.

4.3 rating from 53 reviewers correct

  • Excerpt: Most important thing is the lens gives excellent results, sharp and good color from a 1/2 pound compact lens. Images from 1st 12 shots still good with 10x enlargement! This means it can be your everyday lens (and it is now on my M10) because you can crop image of a far off object if you don't have...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Wide angle lens that accepts filters for MFT with good infrared performance

Photography Fan, Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: Very good center sharpness. Very bad edge sharpness. Got this for my infrared-converted Olympus E-PM2 because it is the only ultrawide angle lens that can accept filters (52mm). Infrared performance is perfect (no flares) at wide apertures. Starts to show some flare gradually as you step down.

Great so far

  • Excerpt: I just got this lens, use it on a GH3. Its is much smaller than I expected(not in a bad way) Micro 4/3 lenses and all small compared to larger Canon or Nikon lenses. Great for landscapes and action sports. I would reccomend buying an ND filter of some kind, it just enhances landscapes 10 fold

nice zoom range

  • Excerpt: A good lens. I love the zoom range. In prior experience with film, I never had wider than 24mm, which I liked very much, and I always missed that focal length with digital zooms typically stopping at 28mm equivalent. Now I find that I'm using the wide end of this zoom more than anything.
  • Pros: Versatile

  • Summary: I bought this for underwater photography and have not had a chance to dive with it yet. I tried it once snorkeling and got good pictures of leopard sharks, got very close to these guys and it the lens focuses fast and sharp.
