Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great zoom sharp as tack and light weight Maybe one of the best zooms I have ever had in my over 20 years in photography - beats all the other micro four standard zooms Stays on the camera very often February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sharp and contrasty, handles well. I use Olympus OM-D cameras and wasn't happy with my kit zoom lens. I saw a lot of online recommendations for this lens, so decided to give it a try. It's an older lens, bigger than the newer zooms covering the 14-42mm range. The zoom ring is large, rubbery, and tactile. I wouldn't say it sticks, but its action does have a cheapness to it - perhaps owing to the plastic materials, which are noisy and not particularly smooth. The manual focus ring is very good - tight and smooth, though not silent. The image quality is excellent. At 14mm, it seems sharpest at f/4. At longer focal lengths, I find sharpness peaks at f/5.6-f/8. It can be just a bit sharper than the 14mm f/2.5 prime, particularly at the edges - though not always. I've compared a lot of images and generally prefer the prime at 14mm. The 14-45 produces images with a lot of microcontrast, but sometimes to the point that very fine details are not resolved as clearly as I'd like. (Black details on a white background can look a bit fat.) The problem is minimized with good light and an electronic shutter. I do not use the in-lens stabilization, so cannot fairly comment about it. November 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheap I bought this lens because I needed something wide. It still not as wide as I would like. The build quality is nowhere near that of the HD lenses. It's plastic with a sticky zoom. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fine performer Quick, fun to use lens, gets the results, fast focus, capable of even poetic, fascinating images. The only limit is what you can do as a photographer. November 27, 2013
