Almost ideal lens. Nearly.
Yes it is an excellent lens and I put the four stars not because of any problems, but because of the fact that in the micro4 / 3 format it does not get to get such volume and depth of the image as in cameras with a large 35-millimeter sensor. I would very much like Olympus to repeat the success of his old lens 14-35 2 in modern design and modern technologies. But in any case, this lens is a splendid zoom, which in combination with the stabilization in the cameras Olympus can remove 80 percent of the emerging plots! Let's enumerate its pluses: protection from dust and moisture, metal casing, stylish design, ease of transition to manual focus - just pull the ring on yourself, a wider range of focal lengths than we used to the lenses of this format, great resolution with open diaphragms in all a range of focal lengths, a calm bokeh, a good macro, excellent backlight work, an additional button to your Olympus camera. And cons? Well, yes - you will not get such a blur as the 24-70 2.8 on the 35mm sensor. But throwing it aside - which of the objectives of competitors in any of the systems can offer all of the above?

Everyday workhorse
This is my most used lens, due to the versatility and image quality- comes handy with the focus ring and the lens-button, perfectly balanced on my E-M1 II. If I would be only able to have one lens I would pick this one

My go-to walkaround lens
This lens is everything I could hope for in a small, fast, well built and weather sealed walkaround lens. It’s sharp wide open, and super compact as the MFT equivalent of the ubiquitous 24-70 f/2.8 lenses for full frame, few of which are available with image stabilization (provided by my EM1.2). I own the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC for my Canon 5D3 and this lens, at a minimum is on par with that highly regarded lens in terms of IQ. I’m extremely happy with this little lens and if I don’t know what I’m going to encounter, this is the one I have on my camera. I recently spent a week at Disney World and usually carried 3-4 lenses with me (12-40 PRO, 40-150 PRO, 17 1.8, and fisheye) and this lens was used for popbably 90%+ of my shots. It’s a wonderful all-around lens.

Excellent lens for the price!
Was able to try it out in stores and the build quality really impressed me. I wish it was a little wider but the overall focal length is perfect for wide and telephoto needs. I could see this as my go to lens for everyday shooting.

Excellent lens
Excellent corner to corner sharpness at even f2.8 and pictures look way better than the kit lens. Pro lenses maintain high standards and also focuses pretty fast.
