WOW
Just received 12-40 Pro much more lens than the standard kit lens. Action is smooth and accurate, impressed by how fast auto focus is and how easy manual focus can be used. balance on EM1 with battery grip is excellent., a little heavy without the grip The lens will be my go to lens taking pictures in the weather extremes in Alaska. The 2.8 is what is needed half the time up here with our long dark winters

Fantastic Lens
I love this lens for it's crispness, beautiful color rendition and portability. I have used it for everything from wide angle scenery photos to portraits and it can do it all! The small size makes it a perfect companion no matter where you go. I have taken it out in -15 temperatures for extended period of times and I've never had any issues with it. Snowshoeing was a delight because I could finally take pictures at the destination without any issues.

Temperature Limits
In a recent trip to Yellowstone's Old Faithful Geyser, the auto-focus mal-functioned in sub-below temperatures. It made me wonder what the limits are of this fine lens. Before that it had been a bullet-proof solution to living in the Pacific Northwest. Takes epic pictures. But alas - I broke mine while snowshoeing. I love it so much I am ordering a second one.

Excellent lens
This is my first Pro series lens, and I am very impressed with the quality and detail of the RAW pictures. Fine detail, and I really like the Manual Focus ring for crystal clear sharpness on the subject in the shot, and having the ability to move the depth of field where I want it. I shoot mostly B&W but usually start in color, and the L-FN button on the lens really makes it simple and easy to program and move between both picture modes to capture the shot I want. The zoom 12-40 zoom works well for framing shots and works well for close in shots. Very pleased with this lens.

Great lens but too heavy
I changed over to the Olympus system to get a small light high quality camera lens combination. This lens takes great photos, and it is beautifully made, but when put on my OM-D E M5 mark ii, the combination weighs two pounds which is 8 ounces more than my Sony NEX 7 with the Sony/Zeiss 16 - 70mm f4 zoom. There are times when you need a zoom, and I carry it then, but most of the time I just mount my Oly 25mm f1.8 on my camera and use that.. If you are considering a purchase of this lens you have to ask yourself if you are willing to carry the weight of this thing around your neck all the time. For me I find I leave it at home so often I question the wisdom of the purchase.
