A cost effective lens for the E-M1
I purchase this lens for my E-M1 and I'm really please with its pictures. I have been using my old lens from my evolt 300 and 620 with the adapter. The focus was a little slow on these lens but the micro ed 40-150mm was great.

Good bang for the buck, I hope
I purchased this lens directly from Olympus January 25, 2015 when the price was dropped to $120 from $200. My standard 14-42mm kit zoom lens failed at 18 months immediately following a firmware update, so I'm hoping to get more longevity from this version. I've had it just a week, but so far, so good. It appears sharp enough for what I need. Be wary of doing any lens updates! ---- Note from Olympus: Sorry to hear about your experience with the M.14-42mm kit lens. Is this something that you have contacted us about previously? We would like to learn more about what happened with this lens. Feel free to contact us at 1-888-553-4448 (M-F 9am to 9pm).

Good lens
I use it to take shots of birds in my backyard, I notice when I zoom in there is a blur in the background. I really enjoy this lens.

Fantastic value!
At the beginning I had doubts because of the price. Well, this fits the bill, an inexpensive lens I could take to sporting events that I can't afford to bring a high end lens to. For snapshots, this lens is good enough. Took it to a dirt bike race in the desert (lots of dust) and got many nice shots of the action. Dirt bike magazine wasn't there but looking for some pics for their magazine. My name came and they picked one of my pics. This has great details and good actions. Wow, proud to see it on the May 2014 issue with my name (credit) on the side.

Useful telephoto range, high chromatic aberration
This is a very useful range (80-300 equivalent), but the chromatic aberration is very high, does not seem to be corrected in the software (EPM2), unlike my compact zoom (1/1.7 sensor size). Surprisingly the quality of the pictures is similar, slightly better in Olympus, but chromatic aberration is a big issue for me. show us at both short (40mm) and long (150 mm) end of the range.
