Pros: Value for money

Cons: Not tropicalized

Opinion: Light, comfortable, well built and of amazing quality that you don't expect from a lens of this price range. The only lens I used with manual focus, which allowed me to shoot in hyperfocal at a speed almost equal to the shot in autofocus, this thanks to the lightness and size. Sharpness more than enough, almost pro (it is not the kit model of 129 euros), indeed I would say that it is a pro series, at a very low price because of the materials, which although economical, are of excellent quality. A good all do 28-84mm equivalent, which loves to make street. Equipped with a silent motor, therefore excellent lens also for shooting video, but that give the maximum to autofocus disabled. About 300 euros well spent, which make you regret the pro series only for materials, but in its favor it has the prerogative to be light as a feather, and even if it is not tropicalized, it is not afraid of light rain.

Pros: Very good quality, lightweight

Cons: None

Opinion: Used in the Xianoyi YI M1 (Sony sensor), compared the Lumix 14-45 mm and Xianoyi 12-40, it is in my opinion the winner while not underestimating the other two goals. The only drawback, if you can say, the lock key. Excellent quality and very light. In conjunction with the 40-150 is the ideal Kit. Bought second hand in about €100.

Pros: Quite small and optically good for its category

Cons: Bad engineering! After a short time, the flat focus cables and the diaphragm opening are damaged.

Opinion: I have two and in both I have encountered the same problem. Extending the focal length over 24 mm signals an error. The machine must be switched off to reuse it only from 14 to 24 mm. The repair would cost a drain. Why does not the Olympus recall all the objectives for a free revision, since the drawback is evident, that is the bad quality of the internal flat cables?

Pros: Small, lightweight, lightning-fast AF, very sharp (but only in favorable light conditions!)

Cons: Poor image quality (especially in challenging light scenes). It is uncomfortable that it is "retractable" (it must be extended with the same zoom movement as it is possible to shoot): if it is left unattended, it will risk losing the moment!

Opinion: A goal of absolutely basic level, as soon as you gain more confidence with photography and the quality of an image, my advice is: libertevene.rnrnIn "standard" light conditions (open on sunny and sunny day, in the interior) it defends itself as image quality, but as it snaps into a bit more difficult (backlight, light, fog) it clearly shows that it is a entry-level goal. The main defects that I have encountered (during an evening out and a foggy evening in Milan) are the apparent presence of the diffraction effects already at f5.6 and / or an astigmatism that makes little or even double contours; the overall result is that the image is covered by a strange "patina" that significantly diminishes its clarity and beauty. rnrn I will only recommend it to those who have little budget and if you absolutely do not want to give up zooming.rn same price, much better for example the Sigma 19mm f2.8 Art (which I have also reviewed): it is worth sacrifice the focal length and AF speed (19mm has good but not lightning) to the benefit of better image quality and better of greater brightness (1 stop more at 19mm than 14-42). Fixed focal length also forces you to train the direction of the frame and perspective, so imagine before shooting, and recognizing interesting scenes. With 150 € or little more it will be coupled with the excellent M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 (which lies abyss over the other two). If you have more budget turn to 12-40mm PRO which is exceptional (see my review).

Pros: Picccolo, great solution, fine optics very fine edges like the center.

Cons: It is so delicious that I can not find it

Opinion: Taken recently for 80 € with the OM D EM5, by NOCT, and I'm happy with the choice, they go with the Nikon, and I completely abandon the Fuji system, too digital monster for me, here the format is smaller than the Apsc , But I find more picture quality, beautiful and balanced colors, every shot I find beautiful and eye-catching, then the Olympus optics are small and surgical, of an exhilarating beauty, and above all at the right price and not exotic, unlike Fuji, optics with prices down to their level of quality, which I always found to be low average (they worked better on vintage optics) ... sorry we wasted money. Olympus 14-42 excellent and balanced, I joined him 40-150 and 45 1.8.
