Hi Guys .. I was bent upon on getting Olympus Zuiko 14-54 mm II after reading a lot about it.I pulled the trigger two weeks ago and got it but never had a chance to test it. Today I left every prime at home and headed towards the city with this lens and Olympus 40-150. I didnt use 40-150 too much but I am impressed with Zuiko 14-54 mm II. IMHO - Main Pros- 1) fast as compated to kit lens and 2.8-3.5 comes handy 2) Built like a tank - I am impressed with its built quality and its WR 3) Exellent macro capability- This lens can work as 1:2 macro and can focus really close 4) Decent sharp pics and better than Olympus kit lens I had . 5) Very much walk around zoom range and very good for video 6)Acceptable low light performance if you are on a budget or dont want to spend a fortune on Primes . 7) Very good cheap alternative to Panasonic 12-35 mm 2.8 if...see in Cons for detailed about IF. Now Major cons 1) Quite heavy and big , Now imagine this lens on OMD with full grip= serious looking camera and heavy - I dont like that 2) Quite slow in focusing . AF is a miss sometimes and you will notice once u have uploaded pics . 3) Noisy focus in video mode 4) Accepts 67 mm filter so in case you have some filters -they wont fit on it . Now Billion dollar question - Am I happy with this purchase ? yes I happy but I have Olympus 12 mm F2, Panasonic 20 mm 1.7 , PL25 1.4 , Olympus 45 mm , Olympus 40-140 and I am gonna pick up 75 mm 1.8 soon . Its very difficult for me to justify this purchase. Moreover I dont like to keep more than 4 lenses at a time . So will I keep only for next few days to play with it and will sell it as I wont use it too much mainly its too heavy and big .I am settling on 12 mm F2, 25 mm , 45 mm and 75 mm 1.8 Cheer Bhupinder Now here are some pics I took today with OMD+14-54 mm 2.8-3.5 II 1- NEX 7 Shooter shot with OMD 2- Super heroes and a heroine pose for OMD 3- Lost in her own world.. 4- Let me read first and I will tell u how to clean the lens 5- Retired and tired friends ..:smile: 6- but colorful Tourists..
