Pros: Compact, lightweight, razor-sharp, good color rendering

Cons: Maybe not very bright, but for me it's not a problem

Opinion: Purchased second-hand (practically new) two years ago, it has become my travel wide-angle zoom par excellence, almost always glued to my Olympus OM-D E-M10 mark II. Very light, sharp and almost invisible fully meets my needs for a versatile and compact wide-angle zoom, fully in the "micro 4/3" concept. The color rendering is also excellent and the thread of the standard filters (52mm) allows me to use any filter at a low price without problems. Keeping in mind that it is a wide angle low light is not a problem for me, thanks to the excellent stabilizer integrated in the Olympus bodies. For portraits or nature photography, where bokeh is important, I use other optics! If we really want to find flaws: hood absent in the package, unpleasant aesthetics and the need to unlock the zoom to use it. But they are little compared to the advantages of such a versatile lens.

Pros: Lightweight, sharp, tiny

Cons: Maybe new is a bit expensive and the button to get it back in is uncomfortable.

Opinion: If aesthetics were an important criterion in a lens I would have put it in the cons because it is really horrible. For the rest nothing to say: it is so small and light that you can also put it in your pants pocket, it is not very bright but for me it is not a problem. I use it in the mountains together with the 45-175 mm and in the city I add the 20mm f1.7 to have a bright fixed and everything is in your pocket. It is the essence of micro 4/3. I forgot: mine is an opportunity in perfect condition paid 300 euros.

Pros: Small, lightweight, sharp, relatively inexpensive, 18mm equivalent, 52 filters,

Cons: Not very bright, ugly, very ugly, even uglier with the hood, not tropicalized, quite plastic

Opinion: It was the lens that really made me love wide-angle lenses. Many complain about the quality, my specimen has always seemed excellent to me. Before this I used the 16-35 f4 canon EF and I never missed it, especially for the weight and bulk. Of course it is not beautiful and it is not even tropicalized, but in the end used it is also relatively little and if you do not have great needs it is fine like that. If I had to choose a single lens for the m43 system I would undoubtedly choose this one (among those I tried)

Pros: Good yield in proportion to the price, more than discreet in absolute, really pocket size.

Cons: Construction

Opinion: Taken waiting to find a used 7-14 2.8, I'm using it and I feel pretty good, on nikon I had the 12-24f4 on the right format and I find the olympus in step below as overall quality, closed from f8 up is very good, the corners also arrive, and the dimensions are really pocket-sized, I do not like the construction that gives me a sense of fragility, I recommend it to those looking for a light wide-angle zoom and at an affordable price.

Pros: there are still no similar optics around that in the quality/price/weight/footprint ratio, they compete with him

Cons: you have to settle for an dated optics that then from various brands has been increased as performance but also as a price, size... and weight!

Opinion: I make it short, read what Preben wrote that I share in full, in fact my purchase was only after reading his review ... and he believes me knows a lot! I use it relatively little but I lacked a 'large' and a real 18/36 covers everything I do.. at the bottom, remember its portableness, I with two optics go out and I can cover a range from 18 to 280 with discreet quality... and little sweat!
