Opinion:Taken to replace the 14-42 kit that I wasn't thrilled with, on OM-10-II. The extra two millimeters are convenient, equates to a 24-60 about on Ff. It seems sharp from TA to 12mm, much higher than expected. At the longer focal points, he loses something. Pasty boken, unfired colors, very neutral. Recommended for those who want to put the camera in the pocket of the jacket to carry it always behind.
Pros:Compact, crisp, starts at 12mm, zooms manually and non-electronically
Opinion:Caught in kit with the Gx9, I thought it ended up in the wet after a week and instead... Very good lens when you want to go super compact, made very good at all focal points, has the plus to start from 12mm. Not having zoomed in on the handyman in the house after a bit of rehearsal I decided to keep it willingly, who would have expected it. The focal range for me is enough to consider it "light all-rounder". Ultimately promoted, vote:8
Pros:Very compact, very light, unsuspectingly good optical quality, zero hot spot issues in use IR one of the reasons why I bought it
Cons:Absurd list price (optics that should be used or new ex kit), plastic bayonet, lack of focus ring
Opinion:The only pancake zoom I digest, since the fact of having to be extended manually to be used, I see it as an advantage, since with the proper attention can be kept ready to use even turning off the machine. Another reason that made me lean to buy, despite having optics of much higher quality, is the excellent but simple optical scheme that makes it suitable for use for infrared photos, without exhibiting problems of hot spots that plague better quality optics in the visible for which they are designed. It is also unexpectedly a stabilized optics which can have some use even if given the focus, the machine stabilizer is sufficient. If you forget to extract it, you receive a signal in the car indicating that the optics are not ready to use! The plastic bayonet with the extra attention, I think will not be a problem, I also have it on another ultra pancake optics in the house m.zuiko. In conclusion I would say a small masterpiece of its kind and scope.
Pros:Compactness, focus, sharpness, price to be used
Cons:Price from new, brightness, plastic bayonet, lack of manual MaF dial
Opinion:A good slow kit, very compact, goes well with cameras like Panasonic's GX series or Olympus' PEN series. The focus that you reach with this lens in my opinion is more than good for a travel use or for a photo amateur. The quality is also surprising: great for non-professional use, also because it is not really bright and at night it is difficult to get good shots to an acceptable ISO. I recommend buying it on used Ebay, since the price of the new in my opinion is excessive.
Cons:need to "open" it to shoot, distortion, lack of MF, low brightness
Opinion:Purchased used pending replacement of the Oly 9-18 and based on some reviews that gave it for sharp. Let's say that sharpness is not the main quality I found. Maybe my copy isn't the best? or maybe my expectations were too high? I don't know, though, with the same focus, I think it's decidedly less brilliant, etched and sharp than Oly 9-18. A disaster you will say. Actually, no. It is of a unique comfort in size and lightness, and now that I have the 9-18 again (definitely not a huge boulder) I realize it. He's in any pocket and he's got enough a hike to get out of the way even when you want to go out light only with him. To see it and pick it up looks like a toy and it seems amazing that it can pull off what it can do. Ah, two small annoyances are: - the need to rotate the dial to activate it. It is therefore not "ready to use" as soon as you turn on the machine - a decent distortion at 12mm. Nothing serious and still easily corrected in post with a click. Lack of manual focus and low brightness I put them in the cons, but they know each other before buying it. Would I buy it back? yes, maybe not, I don't know. True that for what it costs used, and for the clutter, there is hardly even a cap. But the photographic rendering is not one that leaves you speechless.
