    Cons: Soft in every aspect, gets better after f5.6. Hunting AF is expected but its there.

    Pros: Size, Manual Focus ring, silent video.

    Summary: A cheap option with major portability benefits. I find myself using this lens with olympus pen as combo more often than my EM1 with the 12-40 simply bacause its always in my bag, thus the value for money 5star rating.

    Price: Kit lens

    Cons: No manual zooming possible Makes the camera long to start

    Pros: Quite good image quality for a kit lens Very very small Metal build

    Summary: I got this lens with my camera. I took a few photos with it, and the optical quality was ok, but I thought it is not really practical because of electronic zooming. However, it seems to be well built and it is really compact.
