Contary to tests like on DPR, I found the Oly kit lens as good as my Panny 14-45 even in the corners after extensive testing. Makes you wonder. If a thousand people go spreading around that the kit lens is rubbish based on DPR's findings and they happen to test a "not so optical perfect" copy of this lens.......then it makes for a lot of misinformation being spread about the place.
So optically I have no problems with this lens. It is a pretty sharp lens. The real advantage (which can be also be it's achilles heel) is the lens size. The pain is the having to flick that switch to contract the lens when finished and pulling out the lens to begin with. This is an "extra step" for before and after use.....which takes a while to get used to. But the reward of doing so is the size. Not even my old E410 + kit lens would fit into a loose coat pocket. This combo does and that's the real pleasure.:smile:
