Super sharp lens with good zoom range.

Great all around lens that is super sharp. The zoom range will make it my "walk around" lens to use on my Olympus E-M5 Mark III camera. The dust and splash proof design will let me be out in damp or dusty conditions without worrying about damaging it. I like that it is light and compact.

Perfect outdoor activity lens

This lens has quality optics, weather sealing, and is extremely compact. Several online reviews say one should spend "a little more" and get the F2.8 12-40mm pro lens.

My E-M5 MIII with this lens provides exactly the quality photos with minimal size and weight I want
