Small, discrete, versatile social companion.
I bought this lens for the compact package it offered with my E-PM1, E-PM2 and E-PL7. I've also used it with my E-M10 Mk 2. I didn't expect a great deal in terms of optical performance, but I will say it handily beats my expectations. While this is by no means a "fast" lens, it is sharp, and the image stabilization and improved high ISO performance of Olympus' latest bodies make it a satisfactory solution in many environments. So it's outstanding virtue is good performance in a very small package that is unobtrusive while remaining flexible in social situations.

A great walk around lens.
To be honest I really didn't expect this lens to be as good as it is. It's has excellent contrast throughout the range and is surprisingly sharp even wide open at all focal lengths. I was a bit concerned over the E zoom, but I've found that on my PenF you can hold the shutter button down while turning the camera on and it'll focus and shoot in less than a second. I didn't opt for the automatic lens cap as I've had too many problems with those on P&S cameras. Instead I just protect the lens with a 37mm filter. The small form factor is wonderful and allows me to keep it tucked away in my jacket pocket, along with the ultra small 8mm fisheye lens cap. Highly recommended.

A specialty lens.
This is somewhat of a specialty lens, as the extreme form factor makes it slow to deploy. If you have your camera set to sleep be advised it does all sorts of weird things before finally taking shot. The small aparature is good for mostly daylight. At the 42 mm end Olympus's own 45 mm let's in 8 times more light! Good for slow deliberate daytime shooting.

Versatile and great for travel
A great versatile lens that can easily be taken anywhere! I took it on my trip to Iceland and found I didn't need any of my other lenses. This did it all! Overall I am very pleased with my purchase!
