... with the micro 4/3 Olympus E-M1 and I'm not disappointed, it's a good match

Summary: I purchased this lens for use with the micro 4/3 Olympus E-M1 and I'm not disappointed, it's a good match. It a very decent wide angle lens with very little distortion at 9mm. I find it great for indoor shooting where wider angle is desirable, but distortion is not. Incredibly small & light weight and feels decently well made too. The lens locks open when in use and the unlock button closes it down after use.
Excerpt: Using on a Panasonic GH4, it's my backup 4K video camera and so far this lens covers my off the shoulder wide stuff perfectly! The little "unlock to compress" design is kind of meh for me, it's already small enough.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Try it by yourself and you will know why I say "YES"?

Summary: This product is excellent in Zoom out the most, so you can gather the whole big picture into optimal size that you want. And later you can use photo edit or zoom in to see other details, and best of all, after you are zoom in (Magnified), you still can see very clear picture from this lens. Yes, of course it's not 100 % but at least you can tell what inside of that picture. And when you are using close-up function (from camera) will also help you to clarify all details.
Excerpt: Very good lens with just enough wide coverage. No noticeable fish eye effect. Have used it in several conditions (over bright sunlight; dim light) and performs just as expected. Also like the fact it can accommodate filters, which the Pannie cannot.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: I was not sure what to expect - an expensive lens that does not appear (in looks anyway) to be much better than the kit lens. I am addicted to wide angle however, and the choices in M43 format are limited. The compact size (until used) is great - I still have a couple of my older Canon mount lenses and it is shocking how much smaller this lens is (in direct comparison to my Tokina 19 - 35 it is not even half the size or weight).
