Excellent quality for the price

  • Excerpt: This lens makes a great general purpose lens when zoom is not required. The quality is a bit better than your average chinese made, panasonic lenses for micro four thirds systems out there. It is light weight and compact.

One of the best lenses for the money glad I bought it

  • Summary: I have this for my Sony NEX to replace the kit lens and it is great. Color and contrast, C/A and vignetting control are superb compared to the kit lens. The only thing is that it is a pretty long lens. Plus although it resolves much more detail than the kit 16-50mm lens it's only 5-15% sharper. Maybe I got a soft copy because this lens should be even sharper for a prime but it's not as bad as the kit lens.

Sharp in the center

  • Excerpt: I wanted a prime at a good general-purpose focal length. It was between this and the panasonic 20mm f1.7, but the latter cost much more. I saw the Sigma used here at Adorama and got it. Very pleased with the service and product. The lens arrived a couple days early and is in excellent condition. Not sure the image quality is that much better than my kit zoom, at 19mm, but maybe a little.
  • Pros: Good image quality
  • Cons: Kind Of Big For M43

Wow What a Lens

Amazon Customer "sunnyside44", Amazon

  • Summary: I received this as a birthday gift and immediately began using it. My observations are not scientific but those of an artist and fine art photographer. The lens is crisp and focuses very close allowing me to do beautiful closeups. I am sure I would be able to do true macro shots with the aid of an adapter. but the point is that this goes in very close. It is very modern and sleek in appearance and the focusing ring is nimble and easily moved without being loose.

Quality at a bargain price.

  • Summary: Very good lens at a GREAT price! No OSS but wide angle shots beg for a tripod anyway. You can sometimes find the older style for a song.

Good little lens but beware Warehouse discounted products.

I. Clements, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I got one of these through Amazon warehouse. The one I received was missing both front and rear caps, Even though boxed correctly. The front element was covered in dust and fingerprints! I returned that one and got a "new" lens that is working just fine thank you. This is more a warning for anyone getting something through Amazon warehouse. They clearly don't do a very good job inspecting the items they take in.
