    I got this lens free with an EM-10 from B@H I was going to sell it for cheap, but got no takers so I gave it a try and I have to say I was pretty amazed at the decent IQ for such a cheap lens !

    Quite agree, a remarkable little lens for the money

    It is definitely one of the most under rated lenses that I have ever come across. While it may not be the fastest of lenses, it surely out performs its price by a long shot.

    I got this shot just the other day:

    Even a decent long street photography lens as well:

    It's possibly the most underrated lens in the M43 lineup. Image quality far outstrips the price. I use mine with extension tubes for closeup shots of skittish bugs, especially when I need to use the E-M10 built-in flash. The 12-40 is too fat for closeups with flash.
