Hidden Advantage of 12-40mm f/2.8: IR Capability
The hidden advantage of the M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 lens is its completely acceptable infrared (IR) capability, especially when combined with a suitable Olympus camera body. Actual performance using a customary IR filter shows no "hotspot," which is a problem actually with other M.Zuiko lenses, and no substantial loss of contrast or ghosting, which also is often encountered. Unfortunately, the usual IR lens database (often cited online) is erroneous concerning several Olympus lenses and also fails to list this particular lens. Two online tutorials both demonstrate the IR capability of the M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 lens but do not point out that not all M.Zuiko lenses are IR-capable.

Must have!
How many "kit lenses" are f/2.8 and have splashproof construction? this was my first lens purchased with the E-M1 MK I a few years back, and its still going strong after many adventures. All-in-one travel lenses are great, but if you need a faster lens, sacrifice some zoom and get this gem.

Best Gift Ever
Best gift I ever received. I use this lens 99% of the time, it's sharp, solid feel, matches the EM5 and the EM1 for weight. All around best buy.

Convinced me that 12-40mm covers alot of ground
Got this for a gift after reading every review and watching all the youtubes. Not disappointed. It stays on my EM1 all the time, just as it did on my EM5. It's the everyday, do it all for my style of shooting. Sharp, good in low light, not too heavy, well balanced, easy to use and dependable results. I'm now going to look for the PRO line when I seek out new lenses for my Olympus system.

My favorite lens ever !
Couldn’t ask for more ! Bought this lens for a month long trip to Italy. I thought it would be useful but as it turned out it never came off my Pen-f. I was worried it would be too big for my trusty Pen-f but it felt perfect in my hands. The zoom range and fast 2.8 aperture were made for travel photography. The build of this lens is awesome. The manual focus clutch paired with auto magnify gives you the most accurate focusing you could ask for. Oh, and the pictures, they are just beautiful straight out of the camera with detail and contrast to die for. I’ve been shooting for 40 years and this my be my favorite lens ever. Coupled with my Pen-f, to this old film shooter, it’s like a magic machine.
