Well Worth Buying
I purchased this lens on sale and I admit that I didn't expect too much from it. I was very surprised. Excellent sharpness when stopped down to 5.6 or less. If you work within this lenses limitations, you will find a useful addition to your lens collection. The lens is "slow" at f4-f5.6, but raising iSO, shutter speed and a tripod it does great. I found that cropped images 8x10 or less are fine, If you plan on using cropped images at 13x19 use low ISO. I plan on buy the PRO version of this lens and TC in the near future. I will continue to use this lens, because of it't light weight and ease of transport. My only complaint. I would have liked a full F4 range in the zoom range. If you are looking for a tele lens and can't afford the PRO version then buy this. Looking at the lens, this is a great value. You will not be disappointed.

Diamond in Disguise
I wanted a telephoto lens to go with my E-M1. I wanted the PRO version, but it just wasn't in the budget after buying the camera. I "settled" for this lens instead. I noticed right away that it was very light. Due to my history in 35mm film, I equate light with being cheap. Upon further inspection, the lens is smooth and well made. After taking several pictures, I noticed that I couldn't stop. This lens is truly incredible. Is it as good as the PRO? Certainly not, but you simply cannot get this level of quality and the results it produces, for a better price. I would highly recommend this lens to anyone. You will not be disappointed. The images are sharp and the color is absolutely beautiful!

Good Value
This lens was the only telephoto option I could afford, but I have not been disappointed. It is at its' best in the middle of the zoom range, and I have been very happy with some of the shots I have gotten with this relatively inexpensive lens. It is quite light and compact as well, so I can carry everything in a small bag. Even if I had the higher end f2.8 lens I would still want this one because of its' portability.

This is a great carry-around zoom.
Good zoom range. Great outdoors. Quick focusing. Large zoom ring is nice but moves the manual focus ring out farther. Lightweight. Bright enough outdoors don't always need a tripod/stabilizer at longest range.
