    Cons: plastic, electronic focus ring, AF is good but not as fast as my 14-140 v2 which feel instantaneous. Cheap by m4/3 standard, but there still is more attractive choice for Canon, Nikon... It does not feel as smooth when you mount it on the camera as my 14-140mm or even my cheap chinese Lens Turbo.

    Pros: surprisingly sharp at all apertures in the center and across the frame at from f/2.2 (best at f/5.6). not so thin dof but very smooth bokeh solid construction for the price : metal mount and nice quality plastic lens hood very good quality/price ratio low coma --> astrophotography

    Summary: I\'m very pleased by this lens. I didn\'t expect too much for this price, I finally found myself to really like it. It feels nice and even has a strong character :

    Cons: It is not very small compared to its front element size or Olympus 25/1.8. Plastic body and focus ring. Purely electronic manual focus without distance indicators or hard stops. AF is not as lightning-fast as some other m43 lenses (but not slow either). Aperture in auto-aperture modes (S or P) sometimes switches to f/1.8 on Olympus OM-D E-M5 even in low light (I am not sure, maybe it is the camera).

    Pros: Good value at $100. Comes with a lens hood. Decent sharpness. Good bokeh, although some LaCA is visible. Decent AF speed. Very light. Metal mount.

    Summary: Must buy at $100 (unless you already have Pana 25/1.4 or Oly 25/1.8, and even if you already have the latter it might make sense to sell it for more than $100 and buy this one). Not sure if it is worth $179. Not worth more than $200, that is for sure, let alone its asking MSRP.
