  • Cons: Some softening in extreme corners on test sample., No weather sealing. No optical stabilisation., Rattling sound when composing with Olympus bodies., Lens hood looks classy but can't be reversed.

  • Summary: Nie można jednak zapominać o niepodważalnych zaletach tego obiektywu. Do najpoważniejszych należy nieprawdopodobna ostrość w centrum kadru, w zasadzie pancerne wykonanie i parametry.
  • Pros: bardzo solidne wykonanie,, wybitna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru włącznie z maksymalnym otworem względnym,, niewielka aberracja chromatyczna w okolicach maksymalnego otworu,, mała dystorsja,, dobra praca mechanizmu ustawiającego ostrość.
  • Cons: widoczne winietowanie wolno malejące wraz z przymykaniem przysłony,, zbyt duża koma,, przy większych wartościach przysłony problemy w pracy pod ostre światło.
