Pros: excellent sharpness at wide end, good contrast and colors in most cases
Cons: colors a bit too warm sometimes. Size a bit big .

I bought this lens at bargain price ( 80 euros ) second hand following the recommendation of a friend who owns one . On my E520 copy this lens behaves amazingly well and much better than the 14-54 at 14mm up to 30 mm, after that the difference is negligible, with contrast and sharpness on par, slight advantage to the 14-54 at 50 mm . Since I always had sharpness and AF issues at wide angle with the E520, this lens solves the problem for good . On the E620 all good , and excellent results on a M4/3 Pana G5 with adapter .
Colors are on the warm side, which is good except in certain circumstances when a bit of pp is required . The lens is light yet does not feel cheap . Zoom creeping after 25 mm but nothing really annoying . The only real con I can think of is the size, bigger than the Oly 14-54 .

Pros: RAZOR SHARP !!! Great image stablization
Cons: None

I must start by stating this lens is as sharp as the Olympus 12-60 mm F2.8-4 ED SWD. The images produced with this lens are simply superb. I have used both lens and prefer the Lecia. If you desire razor sharp images from a lens, this is a must have for all 4/3 users. The flare and chromatic abrreation control are outstanding. The image stablilation producted sharp images at 1/6 of a second. The optics of this lens are truly amazing !!!
