Cons: None, so long as you can afford it.
Pros: Absolutely superb build quality and good looks. Fast and reliable auto-focus and very useful 'snapshot' manual alternative. Colours and contrast similarly outstanding, and corner to corner sharpness can be obtained from f4 onwards. In fact, you can pre-set the focus to 3 metres, choose f4 and simply concentrate on your composition time after time. Results will be marvellous.
Summary: My favourite wide-angle for use with MFT had previously been the four thirds Olympus ZD 11-22mm f2.8-3.5 lens, which I eventually and regretfully sold. But this new lens outperforms the zoom comfortably. Regarding the price tag, my philosophy has always been to divide the cost by the number of times I'm likely to use something. My worst purchases have invariably been the things that stay on the shelf. This won't. It's a great lens.
