My micro-4/3 "walk around" lens
Back in the 4/3 days (before micro-), I *loved* my Olympus 12-60mm lens -- hardly ever came off my camera. Now that I've fully switched to micro-4/3, I'm so happy that Olympus released this lens to replace my former standby. It's not the lightest lens of its type, but a bit of extra weight gets you weather sealing and amazing durability. Twice since I bought this lens, I've fallen on my E-M1 with the 12-40mm mounted (and I'm definitely not petite!). This is definitely not how I'd recommend you treat the lens, but my copy has survived my occasional clumsiness without sustaining any damage. Oh, and of course, it helps me make great photographs. Its range of focal lengths is so handy that I now rarely take if off my E-M1. All in all, this is a lens that's well worth the investment.

great glass
I love this lens. Everything I could say has already been said, so I'll just add that it's the main lens I use and I find it very versatile.

Sweet sweet lens
I held off buying this for a while. I have a nice 20mm lens: brighter, smaller, what does the "Pro" get you anyway? Well I'll tell you: + I use the zoom much more than expected. Especially the wide end, it's nice to be able to go out to 12mm. + Autofocus is MUCH MUCH FASTER. Now all my photos are of the moment I intended, instead of 1 second later. + Autofocus is also more accurate! + Result: better pictures, and now I only use the 20mm when I just don't have room for this lens, or I really need to open up wider than 2.8. Note: It's heavier than a lot of m43 lenses, so I find this lens much more fun with a viewfinder.

A Must have sense for an Olympus M4/3 owner
Love this lens. Weather proof, fast and super sharp. Bonus pretty light and looks great on my E M5.!

wonderful wide to telephoto constant zoom
This is a great zoom with constant f2.8, the equivalent focal length of 24-80mm works great among many situations. The clutch mechanism is intuitive and able to manual focus without a glitch. The weather seal makes shooting in the rain with an OM-D-EM5 or E-M1 a breeze. It is pricey for micro 4/3 but worth every penny.
