Excerpt: I needed a lens that had a 12mm focal point micro four thirds to use on my Olympus Pen EP-2 for landscape pictures. Olympus offers an outstanding 12mm prime lens as well as their 9-18mm zoom but the price points are prohibitive for my needs even though I'm an enthusiastic photographer.
Summary: I decided to check out this tiny lens while I was also checking out the far larger and heavier (and faster) 12mm f2 Samyang (three samples of that one were tried, but none was found that I wanted to keep).

Excerpt: This is a truly excellent lens, very sharp even fully open, with good contrast, and very small. It converts my EPL-5 into a go-anywhere camera with professional image quality. The combination is almost the same size as the LX-7 that I used to carry with me everywhere, but the image quality is in an...
Excerpt: I use this lens when I want to pocket my Olympus camera. The fact that it starts at 12mm (24mm-equivalent) is just icing on the cake. I prefer its zoom ring to the lever on the 14-42 PZ pancake. It is missing a manual focus ring, but I'm fine with that choice. It's a compact, stylish package.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
