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.

Recommend This I do
I bought this lens to replace my kit 14-42 and so far I am impressed with the build quality, and clarity of glass. It is a different beast compared to what I am use to and has a bit of a learning curve if you have never used professional quality glass.before. It is a sharp and weather sealed lens that I am looking forward to getting to know and using more. I was surprised to see a function button on a lens, but alas I have never owned a pro glass before... Yes I love this lens, yes I recommend this lens. No regrets.

Excellent all around lenss, sharp and easy to use. Mu only complaint is the soom ring that is really stiff so move, sepecially when you to videos. For photography, it's absolutely flawless.

Excellent quality
I have only used this a few times but the pictures are excellent quality compared to the standard 75-300mm lens. I wish I had a pro 75-300mm lens now! Focus is fast and pictures are very detailed. This is a great landscape or lens for close up shots around the house or yard. I carry it when hiking on my side when I want to get a more detailed shot of something. Next purchase will be a macro or the 7-14mm lens.
