Excerpt: I haven't fully checked out this lens yet, but it does seem like a really good compromise between size and zoom range. I usually work with primes, but occasionally need a long reach lens. This one fits my bill and my camera bag.
Excerpt: I bought this lens on sale recently and had the chance to take it on a road trip - impressive. Especially for the $ off sale price. I've needed an auto focus telephoto for my cameras and had been looking at the Olympus version . . . I'm so glad I waited.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Summary: Before buying this I had the Panasonic 45-200. That lens was not very sharp, the autofocus was slow, and it was a bit large and cumbersome. This lens doesn't zoom quite as much, only going to 150. However, it's drastically smaller and lighter.
Great lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera BMPCC

Summary: A perfect telephoto (zoom) lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC). The O.I.S. engages while REC is activated and works surprisingly well handheld on the BMPCC. Image quality and sharpness is up to par for a slow telephoto lens. All in all GREAT value for the money.
Summary: This is my nature and outdoor family lens. It's reasonably sharp for the price, has a good zoom range, and is nicely compact. Not the absolute best long range lens I've used, but certainly the most convenient.
