Great All Around Lens!
I chose this lens because it had a great mixture of wide angle and telephoto. The fact that it is weatherproofed is another GREAT feature. It means I can take it anywhere and not worry about it getting dirty or wet. Overall, I would recommend this lens to anyone who wants to lighten their camera bag especially when travelling.

Great All Around Lens!
I got this lens as part of the very first camera I have ever bought for myself. It is a great all around camera lens and from 14-100mm its packs a pretty big punch. every time I pull out the lens I'm excited to shoot!

Nice Lens!
I use this lens for most of my shots. I like the versatility for taking all types of shots and use it with my OM-D E-M1. A great lens to start out with your kit.

Good All Purpose Lens
Nice all-purpose lens. I had to boost my ISO quite a bit to get the shutter speed fast enough through a moving bus. I like the weather proofing, and didn't worry when it rained. Weather proofing was a requirement for purchase. This lens got me through the trip to Iceland and Norway. I could use just one lens at F22 for front to back sharpness, then work the zoom for distant images. Wish it had the manual focus clutch. A few times, I had to break out the m.zuiko 75-300mm. Wish we had a teleconverter for this lens.

Excellent build quality, weather sealed, excellent image quality, great focal length range for a walk about lens. Recommended.
I have this lens now for about 3 months. The build quality is solid. The lens mount is metal. The body I am not sure whether it is metal or plastic. Nevertheless it feels very solid and has got the right amount of heft to it which creates an impression of excellent build quality to me. The zoom ring offers reasonable resistance and is easy to zoom yet prevents situations where the zoom extends on its own due to gravity. Time will tell whether the lens zoom ring will sustain its current behaviour. It is weather-sealed. I use it my my OMD-EM1 which is also weather sealed. I have used it various conditions which includes rain, very humid environment, and various temperatures ranging from 32C to 7C so far. No issues. In typical Vancouver winter, I will test it outdoors and see how it survives the weather. I don't anticipate any issues. Picture quality is good also. It won't match the quality of prime lenses for sharpness and micro-contrast. However for the incredible amount of zoom offered, the picture quality is excellent. If you shoot JPG, then Olympus cameras will correct for most shortcomings of the lens and the resulting images will be excellent. If you shoot raw, a slight bump in the sharpness and contrast in post processing will result in excellent images. I am very happy with this lens. The colours produced by the lens are very good. Focus is instant, precise, and sure with the EM1, EM10, and EM5. Yes It works very well on all three cameras. This is an excellent walk around lens. Together with my EM1, I do not fear the weather elements, I recommend this lens to fellow M4/3rd shooters.
