    Cons: Not the sharpest lens, not the fastest, but sharp and fast enough for any amateur use.

    Pros: Sharp center and moderately sharp edges. Fast enough for most amateur photographers. Very small lens--less than 5 ounces. Nice easy ring to switch quickly between auto- and manual-focus.

    Summary: Getting this lens refurbished at $250 makes a difference; I might not like the lens as much if I had paid $400. \"Lenstip\" can be hard on lenses, that\'s one reason I use this site. But I\'ve found nothing to dislike about this lens IF you are not expecting a top quality professional lens.

    Cons: No lenshood and no pouch in package.

    Pros: Very good build quality. Very fast and silent AF. Very good MF. Size and weight perfectly fits on OM-D. Full metal.

    Summary: Not the sharpest lens in M.Zuiko Premium line, but definitely decent enough even wide open. Perfect everyday prime. It's no way cheap lens, but still cheaper than closest equivalents in other systems: Canon 35/2 IS, Nikon 35/1,8 FX, Fuji 23/1,4, Tamron 35/1,8, Sony 35/2,8,... Probably just Canons 24/2.8 and 22/2 and Sony 20/2,8 are cheaper.

    Cons: at this price they could include a lenshood

    Pros: very sharp and fast

    Summary: I don't understand the conlusion of the test. It's bad because there is an Panasonic 20mm? This lens is faster and a little wider - to me it makes completely sense. For sure I wouldn't be unhappy if it would cost a little less...
