Fantastic PRO Lens!

By: on 8 September 2016
What a great upgrade from the kit lens. I use this on my EM5 and EM1. Absolutely fantastic images right throughout the zoom length. Nice an light and equivalent to a 24-70mm. After having a couple of primes, I got sick of changing the lenses. This is a great walk around lens for any of the OLY EM cameras. A little front heavy on the EM5, however, add the optional grip and its perfect. Certainly recommend this lens to any M4/3 user. Thanks to the team at CE for making the purchase easy.
