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: Tropicalized, bright, impeccable construction, sharp

Cons: I don't know

Opinion: THE all-rounder lens, you cover us well over 90% x travel photography. Repeatedly used with an EM1 in the pouring rain, never had a problem. Minimum focusing distance, it is almost a macro. Very convenient also the ring x manual focus, immediate, effective and with the right excursion and resistance. If I had to keep one zoom only, it would be this.

Pros: Size, weight, construction, IPX1 certification, undisputed optical quality, autofocus, pleasant blur

Cons: Resistance to flares against light not always impeccable, not having it in your kit

Opinion: Where to start? there are so many excellent aspects about this lens that summarizing them is difficult. Taken primarily for its undisputed optical qualities in relation to size and is a lens that will be very difficult to exclude in your kit. Massive as a block of steel but smaller than a bottle of water transmits first hand a cold feeling of great solidity and habituation given by its construction entirely in aluminum except for the inner barrel and the hood that are made of plastic. But only once mounted you immediately understand what you are dealing with: very fast and precise AF thanks to the linear motor, extraordinary optical quality from edge to edge at each focal length giving its maximum between F / 4 and F / 5.6, excellent sharpness even at f / 2.8, very good macro capabilities, focal range sufficiently versatile for most uses, MF Clutch mechanism to immediately switch from AF to MF with also a scale (in Ft and Mt) useful for various purposes.

Pros: Compactness, lightness, solidity sharpness at all focal lengths

Cons: Maybe and I say maybe , blurred slightly nervous and slightly flat colors but nothing that you can not solve in post

Opinion: Excellent all-rounder lens for its focal lengths, it takes the machine to a higher level and not for nothing is it a PRO! The mount and almost do not disassemble it anymore if you do not need a longer zoom, at low lights slightly slow focus but it can also depend on the settings of the machine, I used it on g80, g9 and M1 mkii

Pros: Construction, dimensions, yield also at ta, colti speed af

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Zoom built very well, light perfect with my em1 mkIII, beautiful blurred, very nice color rendering, price especially on the used excellent, absolute tropicalization autofocus very fast, another Olympus pro lens that I recommend without reservations, even at full aperture has an excellent yield, perfect at 40 mm per portrait. If they asked me for a single lens for the m4/3 system I would recommend this one.
