  • Excerpt: I got this to be used as a value zoom lens with OIS and I have not been disappointed. The image is nice and it has a decent weight to it. Works well with my BMPCC.

Cheap

  • Summary: I bought this lens because I needed something wide. It still not as wide as I would like. The build quality is nowhere near that of the HD lenses. It's plastic with a sticky zoom.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Convenient
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor quality

Best Standard Micro 4/3 Zoom

MalcolmL, B&H Photo
9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I can hardly fault this lens. Its sharp except in the very corners where there is a hint of softness wide open. It focuses fast and accurately, the colours are pleasant, CA is there but is a small fraction of what you would expect to see, the micro-contrast is excellent and there macro contrast has a good balance. For the price point, this lens represents excellent value for money. Compared to the Olympus 14-42 11 R which I owned briefly, there is no comparison.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Good Lens, Good Value

  • Excerpt: This lens seems to be a good value and it is getting me pretty clean images most of the time. I like the stabilization... I am still learning to use my camera and just getting to know the lens. While I would like to have the 12-35 GX Vario lens, this costs a fraction of the price with a similar range and probably 85-90% of the quality.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Good lens but very small

Ryan G, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The lens is amazing don't get me wrong but I am slightly disappointed by the size of it. It's not a huge deal but it just makes your camera look less professional and if you have bigger hands the focus ring may be hard to use.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Bang for Buck

  • Excerpt: I have been using this lens on my black magic pocket camera for travel. For it's price it is brilliant. It's range of zoom makes it quite versatile and the OIS does a good job of removing small shakes during hand held recording. A pixel watching fanatic will notice some quality artifacts but, again, for the price it is produces excellent picture quality.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
