Summary: Awesome, one of the best lenses for the money, for micro four thirds cameras. Fast focus, in auto mode and works wonderfully on my olypmus e-pm2 . Planning to get the 60mm lens next. Build quality is outstanding. Comes with a carrying pouch and hood. Just get it.
Excerpt: I will never understand why everybody wants 1.8 prime lenses for micro four thirds. 2.8 is more than enough, period. I Use it with Olympus M-10Very well built lens,it has a hood MR OLYMPUS MAN" do you hear this???? how can a company that make such great cameras be so mean!!!! for God sake just for your company's image put the hood and disguise it with the price!!! all your lenses come without hood SHAME ON YOU.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I am using this on an EPL-5, as a walk around lens, instead of the kit 14-42 in lower light. The kit is ok in the middle of the zoom in a sweet spot in cramped quarters, I shoot art sometimes and the idea is to get barrel distortion down on paintings I run across. I have an EM-5 and a Canon I use for art. This is a backup travel camera, EPL-5 has good IQ, small, and I needed a second lens for it. Its NOT, grin, a Panasonic Leica 25mm for 695.00.
Excerpt: Despite it's clunking sound when the camera is not on this lens produces very crisp images and extremely nice colors. In combination with a Sony a600 this is a must have lens for beginners as for pro photographers.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
