    I was at target and this lens was on clearance, I bought it for $150.

    Is that a ok deal?


    I shot a few images in the Target parking lot to ensure it works, as I always have my e-pl1's with me.

    I feel even at $200 it is still a great bargain

    Check to see if it has the latest firmware, made a huge difference in the OIS

    Good price for that lens. I just took a bunch of shots using it on the E-PM1 (with the VF2) at Disney's Animal Kingdom and so far they look pretty good.

    What specifically should a person look for to determine if the lens is a good copy? Is it soft at the long end? Does the OIS not perform properly? Are there certain focal lengths/f stops that produce bad results? I've read snippets here and there about people having issues with various things, but if you're able to comment, I'd really like to know some specifics as I have a new copy of this lens waiting for me at home as I type this. Thanks!

    I am curious also...

    the only thing I know to do, is zoom in and shoot.

    I think my copy is ok.
