Most Versatile Lens
It has become my go to lens as I can use it for so many different photo shoots.

Best Multi-purpose lens.
Took this lens and the M.ZUIKO ED 12-40MM F2.8 PRO on a vacation. I left the M.ZUIKO ED 40-150MM F2.8 PRO at home due to weight. I used the 12-200 in every situation except one where the lighting was lower and I could not use the flash. The pictures even in most lighting came out great. I would love to have an overall 12 to 200 f2.8 or 4.0 but the weight would be preventative to hike around with. The 12-200 is a decent compromise for a lens. It handled everything I used it for and the pictures looked great.

Excellent photos, iffy stiff handling
The lens arrived a week before we left for a cruise, so I didn't return it, but the zoom action is extremely stiff and "sticky" on this particular example. That notwithstanding, the photographic results have been outstanding attached to my OMD E-M5 with over 1,000 photos taken already in all kinds of light and humidity conditions, but no temperature extremes.It seems to have "loosened up" some with use, but I still would not characterize it as "smooth zooming." That is the one reason I did not give it a 5-star rating.

A very good general purpose zoom.
The lens is quite remarkable for a lightweight, long range zoom. It is light and nicely balanced on an E-m1 II. Focusing is quick and precise. Sharpness and bokeh are very good for a medium priced lens. There is some trace of color fringing but it is very slight and does not generally require any correction in postprocessing. It is an excellent choice for a travel or walk around lens.
