I've had this just over a year now, and bought it because it was a good price for a fairly good range of focal lengths for day to day use. I use it with an Olympus omd em10. The lens itself is incredibly light and I guess some would complain that is it a bit plasticky, but I am not too heavy on my gear and I bought into micro 4/3 so I could fit all I need for a day's shooting into a small bag so I'm not complaining. It takes a while to get used to the quirks of each lens. I am just back from a wedding and used a variety of prime lenses of shorter focal lengths but my favourite pictures of the day were taken with this lens, wide open, up to full focal length and 800iso to keep the speed high. The results are breathtaking enough for me to think I should write a review. In fact in a lot of photos the results are too sharp and I have been softening down the skin on portraits to be kind to the subjects! The autofocus was plenty quick enough especially with the automatic eye detection on the camera for me not to have a single photo go wrong for lack of focus, only composition error. The bokeh is lovely and smooth and even though I forgot my lens hood, the contrast is really very good in the photos. I'd highly recommend this lens as an easy to carry and won't leave you disappointed in real life situations.

Small, light and reasonably sharp at the tele end, sharper as you get wider. Stooped down a couple of stops will render the long end pretty sharp - especially if you are not shooting something distant and have lots of atmosphere to reduce sharpness. I like it, I'm an ex-professional photographer and I shoot travel images on a micro 4/3 camera. This fits into a small rucsack along with the usual day's gear and I fish it out when needed. Well recommended and only down to 4 stars because it's a little less than excellent at 150mm.

I got this lens for Christmas last year. Given the price, I wasn't sure how good it would be, but it provides great value for money. The lens is more than twice as large as the 14 - 42mm kit lens, but is very light. It seems sturdy enough, but I wouldn't like to drop it. It's plastic construction and not weather proof.

The lens is really sharp, even wide open, and can produce shallow depth of field with good bokeh, especially at longer focal lengths. Due to the slow max aperture, it's not ideal as a portrait lens. At 45mm the depth of field isn't shallow enough, and at the longer end you need too much working distance. It's great for taking close ups of architectural details in large buildings, or slow-moving animals that aren't too close or far away. I've also got some nice shots of sunsets and moon rise at the longer end of the zoom.

The lens is light enough to use without a tripod in good light, though as it is non-stabilised this may only apply to users with Olympus cameras which have IBIS. In low light, the focal length means you really need a tripod. Minimum focus distance is around 90cm away meaning you can't really use this for close-ups of small objects as an alternative to a macro lens.

The lens isn't perfect, but it's great for what it is. It's much lighter and easy to carry around than the new pro 40 - 150 zoom, and much better value for money.

I was very close to giving this lens five stars as it is very good quality for money. Still, when it comes to photography equipment, I would like to reserve the fifth star for things that are both good value as well as outstanding in quality.

I have been very disappointed with telezooms ever since I got my first micro four thirds camera. Unlike the Canon 70-200 I used before that peaked at full extension, the Panasonic ones all started getting so fuzzy at the long end the last 50mm of range or so might as well have been digital zoom as opposed to optical. This kept annoying me so much I didn't keep any of them.

Eventually, I went for this one that, unlike the Panasonic 45-200mm, for instance, didn't seem to overextend its range at the cost of image quality as much, as well as being light and cheap.

Image quality isn't excellent at full extension, nor would I expect it to be, but it is usable. The lens is very light and therefore easy to bring along when your main shooting is done with a standard zoom or prime - as is often the case for me.

I know this varies from lens to lens, even from copy to copy sometimes, so I can't generalise too much, but from my experience with it, it does seem to be optimised for infinity rather than close range, which I think is good for a long-reach telezoom as most of my photography done with it would be at mid-to long range and not at the close-focus limit.

I ended up selling my M43 kit in the end, including this one, for reasons I won't go into here, but for the last year or so, this was my go-to telezoom, and I think it did a decent job of it. In fact, I think if you want something significantly better, you really have to go with the pro f/2.8 lenses. They cost several times a much, are bigger and heavier, but of course outstanding in image quality.

If all you want is a bit longer range at a very affordable price, I don't think you can go wrong with this lens.

Astonishing value for a lens that really gives results. The overall appearance is slightly plasticky, with mould lines on the barrel, but this is far outweighed by the quality of the images. I use it with my Panasonic GX7, it's a great match. My only slight beef is with the cap - the tabs are small and positioned on the outside edge, which makes it difficult to remove when paired with a hood.
