Decent

  • Summary: Good build quality, metal mount, mounts very tight to the camera body. Nice manual focus ring, nice lens cap and hood, and pouch. Takes ok pictures, I am not seeing much difference from my kit lens (Olympus 14-42mm iir). But f2.8 makes it take better low light pictures than the kit lens.

The best lens for the money isn't necessarily a nice one

  • Summary: We M4/3 adapters are marred with an extremely exclusive and expensive lens market. We're faced with fairly expensive lenses from Zuiko and Leica, but Sigma is offering us a boon in the guise of a Nifty-Fifty equivalent. Well, it's anything but.

Not an improvement over Olympus kit lens

Andy, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: After using this lens for a while in a variety of settings, I can say with some certainty that unless you absolutely need the larger f/2.8 aperture, there's no reason to choose this over the 14-42mm II R kit lens. It has more color fringing, softer edges, and work against bright light sucks.

not worth the upgrade from kit

  • Summary: I got this as an upgrade from 14-42 kit. the bokeh just isn't there. or should I say just not enough of an upgrade. if you had a body only, YES BUY THIS. but if you're looking for some sweet bokehliciousness, you should PROBABLY go with the panny 20mm 1.7 (I do not own which is why I'm enphasizing...

Good for price, but...

Andy H, Amazon

  • Summary: Okay, first of all this a pretty nice lens, construction is nice, and I can get quite good photos with it, however it does have some drawbacks. This lens is essentially a compromise, and its one that I've regretted. If you want a wide angle lens, this doesn't feel that wide, and its not very fast.

Zu plastik

Alfred Ross "Rossa", Amazon

  • Summary: Das objektiv passt und kann bilder...aber das war nicht anders zu erwarten. Ich nehm es aber nicht gerne in die hand - das plastikgehäuse fühlt sich halt doch nicht hochwertig an....

Eene meene miste, es rappelt in der Kiste

Amazon Kundenrezensionen "Mi Rö", Amazon

  • Summary: Aufgrund der vielen positiven Rezensionen und des günstigen Preises habe ich mir dieses Objektiv mal zusätzlich zum vorhandenen Kit - Objektiv für meine Nex7 gekauft. Schon beim Auspacken der Schreck; das Ding rappelt wie ein Sack Nüsse.

Kaum Gewinn für Lumix (G3)

Uncle Scrooge "Uncle Scrooge", Amazon
20 January 2013
  • Summary: Das Objektiv ist sehr gut, aber es bringt wenig an einer Lumix (G3). Der Vorteil in der Lichtstärke gegenüber dem Kit-Zoom (14-42) geht wegen fehlender OIS verloren. Vergleich zum Kit-Zoom (bei 19mm): Es ist nur unmerklich schärfer (bei gutem Licht). Das Bokeh ist schöner.

Optisch top - mechanisch flop !

Hitech-Tester "Customer", Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: Ach was tut es mir leid, dem Sigma hier nur drei Sterne zu geben!!!! Aber was soll man tun, wenn's halt nicht ganz passt. Aber der Reihe nach: Optisch ist das Sigma nahezu konkurrenzlos, in seiner Preisklasse sowieso generell.

  • Summary: hallo ihr fotografen was soll man schreiben - wenn ich mir andere rezesionen ansehe - wie wichtig sichdie beurteiler nehmen - dann sage ich nur einsetzbares objektiv zum angemessenen preis - nicht mehr und nicht weniger - ich für meinen teil werd nur noch festbrtennweiten von nokton kaufen
