Pros: Great workmanship, compact solid construction, bright and fast, very sharp photos from the full aperture f / 2.8, comfortable and handy for me, MF clutch, practical and versatile.

Cons: I have not found and I think I will not find.

Opinion: Perfect sharp lens. I have been using it for 5 months and it meets all expectations that I associated with it. I bought it for a body E-M10 Mk II as a wide-angle lens for photos of the night sky, Milky Way and landscape. I'm still learning it and I'm counting on new discoveries of its use. A great advantage is the possibility of min. sharpening already from 0.2 m.

Pros: quality and quality again

Cons: for my use the 40 is a bit ... short 50/60 was better

Opinion: the favorite one among the optical park in my possession (4 that are enough!) factotum although I admit a 60 was more flexible but ... quality breaks down.... only my little Oly forty-five.. precisely the fixed that at 45/1.8 is a .. razor can in some cases compete... but it's a fixed. Great on every occasion is respected in the results it offers me with any light... a war machine!

Pros: Zoom comfort, great at all focal points, general rendering, tropicalized, mf/af gearbox ring, additional fn key, including lampshade

Cons: light flare in backlight and light lamp just uncomfortable to insert/remove as if closed on the lens does not allow to act comfortably on the manual fire

Opinion: Perfectly built, equipped with lampshade and bag for transport, I start with the saying that I would call it a must have in the field micro 4/3, I explain: it goes in accordance with the philosophy of the latter (great compromise between transportability and quality skills, you take this on the road and go everywhere without too much lenses and above all too much weight, a lens for apsc of the same type would be almost double), unique defects suffers from a slight flare in contrast to light and weight not really feather but being: tropicalized, with an excellent yield at all focal points and excellently built (it seems just worth all the goals). It's pretty overshadowed. To have micro 4/3 optics, does not make you regret larger sensors in many situations

Pros: Sharp, bright, solid, pro

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: My OMD EM10 III no longer looks the same, a lens that is certainly not economical and light but a whole other planet than kit targets. Sharp, bright for me fantastic, tried even in the studio gave great satisfaction. I don't know I can't find a flaw, the images have saturated and sharp colors, fantastic the dial to go from manual fire to automatic fire.

Pros: Sharp, well-built, solid, weather-sealed, versatile.

Cons: A Little big.

Opinion: It is a good lens, constant for sharpness, brightness and chromatic rendition in all focal lengths. It can replace, with some limitation, a macro, given the minimum focusing distance. Weight and size from pro lens, greater than the micro 4/3 standards. The lens is however proportional to the Panasonic G9, on which it works and you can also adjust the FN key, very practical in the use. Affordable price for performance and in comparison with the competition.
