    I owned the 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for over 6 months using with EM5. The result is really very good. No problems encountered.

    I did for maybe a year - no issues. It is not going to rival some of the sharpest lenses, but it makes very good pictures (like those above) and is a very useful single-lens solution as long as you don't need to shoot in bad light. I only sold mine because with the 12-35 and 35-100 it really seemed mostly redundant, not because of any dissatisfaction with the lens or its performance (on either my EM-5 or the GX-1 and G5).

    Note that the OP mentioned the 14-140/3.5-5.6, which has only been out for 8 months, so your experience is probably with the older 14-140/4.0-5.8.

    I picked up this lens a few weeks back as an all in one travel lens for my EM5 to replace the 12-50 which I found lacking in range.
    Its a great little lens, feels nicer to use and shorter than the 12-50, pity its not weather sealed too but its noticeably sharper!!

    I found the FL range perfect as a holiday lens but I did have issues with focussing using a CIRPL filter at focal lengths over about 100mm.. Even manual focussing would produce crap images so its a flaw or 'feature' of the filter itself, not an issue the lens.
    I will eventually try a better quality filter to see if the problem still occurs, instead of the Inca one I originally used.
