Pros: Sharpness, brightness, AF speed, 24-120 equivalent

Cons: Resistance to flare, distortion, weight

Opinion: I State that I use this fantastic lens on E-M1 with adaptor. A true PRO lens; Bright, sharp, with an ideal focal length (24-120) and a very fast autofocus. I Often think of buying a 12-40 pro, but I have a feeling that the equivalent 120mm I would miss too... OF course the lens is not light and on an M4/3 body It is a bit disproportionate, but the files pay off. Between the negative sides, in addition to the weight, the distortion at 12mm (despite the lens profile applied by the machine) and flare, but for the price that is found in the used (about €200) remains, in my opinion, a lens with excellent value for money.

Pros: sharpness, brightness, beautiful color, durability and weather sealing, one cut perfect optical (12-60).

Cons: no defects except the price worth every euro.

Opinion: a view not to be forgotten, hard to find something more powerful. The use of this objective will please those looking for perfection. Once inserted in the camera will be difficult remove and replace with another goal, I use it with micro 4/3 adapter on a M5 and I'm really satisfied with his functioning.

Pros: The purpose of professional quality, dust-proof and splash. Very rugged and accurate built with quality materials. Weight. Very good optical quality, bright lens and MAF fast. Fair price.

Cons: Nothing to report except the size and weight, which although not excessive when compared to the brightness and class of the product, we do not recommend using with the entry level bodies.

Opinion: Subject raccomandabilissimo for those with the machine body proper (E-3, E-5 and E-30) to have an excellent balance, but sometimes personally use it in case of need and without any problem even with an E-520. It 'pretty much the handyman professional class of Holiday Olympus to meet the average 80-90 per cent of the general photographic needs. It is distinguished by the excellent optical performance already at room temperature, is at the center than at the edges and almost the entire range of focal lengths, that saves a slight (but physiological and correctable via SW in pp) 12 mm distortion that fades immediately and almost entirely already at 13-14 mm. Very good resistance to flare, excellent MAF minimum distance of just 25 cm at maximum LF 120 mm equivalent to almost one macro. Note that the front lens does not rotate during zooming which allows to use in an optimal manner possible filters and / or polarizers.
