yeah, it is all that and more
I would have not expected to use this lens as much as I do. I removed the tripod mount and only pull it out when needed, I find myself hand holding this lens for a surprising range of shots and find it to be incredibly versatile as a semi macro lens, portrait lens, and of course for its distance. Did I say it's sharp? It's a decent sized lens, but not in an obtrusive way. Like all the pro lenses, it's solidly built. I dare say, it may well be my favorite lens.

I've used this lens for three months now. Having used both Canon and Nikon 2.8 zooms in the past, I can say this lens is just as good, with a much longer range, at a lower price. The color is natural, the bokeh is lovely, the sharpness and contrast are fantastic. It shines wide open or closed down a stop or two and across the full range of focal lengths. I have used it with confidence in snow and driving rain. Two things especially that I like are the innovative lens hood that you never have to reverse (all should be made this way) and the snap manual focus ring. It could be improved with arca-swiss grooves on the tripod foot and a more protective case with belt loops. This is not expensive or large or heavy for what it is. In fact it's nearly perfect.

As a former Nikon guy I was used to great optics including the 70-200 f/2.8 and 4 and the 300 2.8 and 4. This is their equal and, while big for an m43 lens, it is far smaller and lighter than they are. The focus is lightening fast, the color and detail are amazing and it is sharp, sharp, sharp. Worth every penny!

Mesmerizing photo experience!
I bought this lens and the tele-converter last month and have used it so far for portraiture, and, outdoors for architectural images, on my OM-D EM-1. The outcome is unbelievable! The super sharp images I got in hand held photography were more than enough to justify my thrice postponed decision to purchase this amazing lens & teleconverter. With my 12-40mm f2.8 pro & this lens combination, I am ready for an exciting season in the sun!

Great Optics
This is a fine lens. It is well built, operates smoothly and has crystal clear optics. Yes it is up there in cost, but understand that when Olympus puts the 'pro' moniker on this lens, it is built and works to a fine standard.
