    Cons: Only average quality.

    Pros: Good walk around lens. Quite good between 14 mm and 25mm. I use it most of the time except when I need top quality then I use Panasonic 20mm 1.7.

    Summary: Very useable lens

    Cons: Bad sharpness in the corners (compared to 14-42(one) and 12-50) Plastic mount Longer minimum focusing distance than version one

    Pros: Smooth operation Fast focus small

    Summary: This is the worst of my 14-42(one), 14-42IIR and 12-50 when it comes to sharpness. But it is fast focusing and feels good when you zoom it.
