The f3.5-5.6 aperture is about average in terms of aperture speed for a standard zoom, although the tele-end is a bit shorter than a typical 14-40 range, so at full zoom (32mm / 64mm full-frame equivalent), it's not going to be quite as close to the action, nor quite as fast a shutter speed nor shallow a depth of field. However, the lens is also wider at the wide angle end, which I find preferable - especially for travel shots. A good range, and although slightly slow, in-body image stabilisation takes care of most issues, except for depth of field.
Some might want more metal in the barrel, but I don't - plastic is perfectly durable and better still for a travel lens as it is so lightweight. This is a great addition to a micro four thirds kit.
I recently took the lens with me on holiday to Cyprus and I have been very impressed with the results. The lens produces *very* sharp images and offers a range of angles that means you keep your kit to a minimum and travel light. The colour and contrast profile is also nice - lively without being cartoonish. Beautiful, sharp images. I still love using my Panasonic 20mm and 14mm primes, and would likely prefer those in lower light and night shots, but for most purposes, this is a really great micro four thirds lens. I also had an Olympus telephoto zoom with me, and the difference in quality is stark - the telephoto lens was soft throughout its range and had muted colours. I won't be using the Oly again.
One of the reasons I like the mft format is that you can mix the brilliant Panasonic lenses with the superb Olympus bodies, which add image stabilisation in-camera. My only criticism of the lens is that it's a little pricey at SRP. I was fortunate enough to get it at a discount, so keep your eyes open for deals. However, knowing now how good the lens is, the full price is not entirely unreasonable.
Get a 37 to 52mm filter adapter, as most of the Panasonic lenses seem to have 52mm filter threads, that way you can share filters, hoods, lens caps etc between them.
Since buying this lens I have also acquired an Olympus E-PM2 body, and this lens now lives on there. The combination of the two is almost pocket-size, and performs admirably in low light (the flash never got used on my last holiday, the low-light performance was so good- even in dimly-lit pubs and restaurant).
