Description: Bought this lens thinking I need wide angle lens. I don't. I just can't make it work. Optics are perfect. Barrel condition is good, see photos for usage marks and wear signs. There is one very mysterious scratch on the barrel that looks like a scribble made with a ballpoint pen. I don't know how that could have happened. Regardless, it is a little hard to notice. The hood which is fixed in position (thankfully - front element is a bulb) also shows minor wear here and there. Priced accordingly or wayyy lower than what I could find on interweb.

Optics: 9/10
Exterior: 7/10


I used it on GX85 briefly and EM1.2 and it works flawlessly. I am told Pana lenses can be a little tight on Olympus bodies, but this one gave me no heartburn.

Takes sharp pictures right off the bat, at f/4. I don't think you will ever need to stop down. Goes from super wide to moderate wide FOV. I am no expert in wide angle lenses but to me this little thing is a gem. My pictures taken with this lens have incredible details in them. You will be happy surely.
Also true to m43 ideology, lens is tiny and light. Perfect.

If I remember correctly this is one of the original m43 lenses from way back in time and still performs admirably. Focuses good enough and I have definitely seen slower lenses than this one across multiple systems. Astonishingly, it still sells for $800 new.

Lens comes with front OEM (huge) cap which has clever felt lining, Lumix rear cap and also box with paperwork. I don't have the cardboard insert that comes in the box but I will pack lens nicely.

Price includes PP fees if you wish to use G&S and shipping to the whole US of A. HI and AK are ok too. Local pickup even better - I am in Seattle.

Will trade for Olympus 12-40 pro. Sold that lens for no reason and I want it back. 12mm is plenty wide for me.
