A must have, great lens addition.
Stunning image quality. Easy to carry everywhere everyday, extremely versatile piece of equipment, and at f2.8 very sharp and bright images. Very solid build, quality, weather sealed manual focus clutch, very fast auto focus when needed +++ I am happy I purchased this one.

Nice Wide Zoom BUT with limited reach
Nice lens, fast but short zoom range makes it usefulness limited for my purposes. It's almost as if Olympus made it 12-40 F2.8 deliberately so you want/need to buy the 40-150 F2.8. I still have a week or so to return and I might exchange for the 12-100 F4 which might the right compromise...I needed more zoom for my daughter's wedding next month.

A must have lens
This lens matches if not exceeds performance of the full frame DSLR lenses in this range that I have used. Combined with the incredible image stabilization features of my Olympus camera - this is a winning combination for most of my street and landscape photography needs.

Outstanding everyday use "standard / prime" lens.
Rather than opt for a fixed focal length lens such as the 17mm or 25mm as my standard or prime lens, I picked the 12-40 f2.8 PRO as my first lens for my EM-1. I have never regretted the decision. With the weather sealing against rain and dust, I don't have to be so concerned about keeping the lens (nor the EM-1) covered when I'm out in the rain. The EM-1's image stabilization makes low-light / slow shutter speeds not a concern so the f2.8 maximum aperture is plenty bright enough. Image quality is superb. Great job Olympus!

Great go-to, all around lens
This lens is very light and small, maintains sharpness with low aperture throughout the range, is quite fast and sharp at night with live bulb/live time etc, is said to be weather-proof (but I have yet to test this out), allows easy switching between AF and MF via the clutch or the L-Fn (when customized to MF), works well with extension tubes and yields great results with focus bracketing/stacking.
