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 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.
