Great lens to always have on your camera
Pictures are sharp, lens operation is smooth and easy. I took a two week vacation with only this lens on my OM-D E5 II and never felt a need for anything else.

Versatile Lens!
Great lens for almost any situation. I've used it for a variety of different shots and haven't been disappointed.

Great all-in-one lens for travel and situations where focal length needs may change quickly
Excellent all-in-one zoom solution is great for travel and for situations where you need to change focal lengths in a hurry. Sometimes, swapping lenses may cause you to miss that "perfect" shot. However, with the 12-200mm, which offers a 35mm equivalent of 24-400mm, you can easily go from ultra wide to long telephoto with a single lens, reducing the need to swap lenses. Given the range, it is not super fast, but a faster lens would have been larger and more expensive so Olympus chose to stay in the sweet spot and in bright sunlight, the 12-200 can stay on your camera all the time.

Can't recommend it more
This is an outstanding lens. Professional quality from the wide to the tight end, and a really useful zoom range of 24-400mm (35mm equivalent). Focusing is quick and silent, and the image stabilization when used with the EM1x or EM1- II is astonishing. If you can hold the camera solidly, exposures of 1/2 second produce great sharpness. Build quality is also outstanding. There is nothing I don't love about this lens. This is the lens I keep on the camera when I travel as it does everything well.

Versatile lens with excellent quality
This is an amazingly versatile lens, both the focal length range and the very good close-up capability. Is it as sharp as my f/2.8 lenses? Not quite, but still very good. I purchased this lens primarily for hiking and backpacking, where I often don't have time to switch lenses, and often am in dusty conditions where even with the camera's great dust reduction, bad things can happen when the lens is removed. On a recent backpack in the Utah desert I even shot star trails, using the Live Composite feature, with great results. The lens does vignette, especially wide open, but the built in lens profile usually takes care of that in LR
