    Cons: No sharper than standard kit lenses at widest focal length. Edge sharpness ought to have been better at 14mm in particular. Slightly lacking in micro contrast standards of 11-22mm lens, for example and therefore not as contrasty in its output. A touch of chromatic aberration to be found if you look for it, again more prevalent at the wide end.

    Pros: Build quality and overall versatility. Superb results throughout the frame in mid-ranges, i.e. from around 18-40mm. Surprisingly reliable focus accuracy achieved on Panasonic G5, despite dire warnings on photo forums to the contrary. Very good close focus capabilities - bordering on genuine macro standard.

    Summary: A second-hand bargain because many photo scribes would have you believe it's unworkably slow to focus. To be honest, it helps considerably if you have a vertically standing critical focus object, but usually a green confirmation box will appear if you're patient and manual focus assist can help if you're not sure.

    Cons: Little CA, Occasional AF missing, Short distance scale

    Pros: (Relatively) Fast AF, Negligible Distortions, Fast Aperture, Nice Design, Decent Resolution, Relatively small for this kind of standard zooms.

    Summary: It has everything that essential for standard zoom lens for semi-pro and enthusiasts. Especially, Low(Negligible) distortion in all zoom range and relatively long zoom range are very attractive. The only flaw is lack of the SWD drive, but it still provide a quick and comfortable AF in almost all situation.

    Cons: Misses focus on a rare occasion, not constant aperture.

    Pros: Bright zoom, cheap, very well built, great zoom range, weather sealed, focus scale, comfortable focus ring, relatively small for such a quality zoom, close focus, simply one of the best normal zooms out there.

    Summary: Really big step up from the kit lens. The biggest difference is the speed, especially on the long end. Sharpest in the 30mm range. 50mm good for portraits. A really good people lens. Built like a tank, yet not enormous, this is the reason why people love their 4/3rds systems.

    Cons: Slight vignetting, Chromic Aberration

    Pros: Sharp even at widest apertures and across the focal range, relatively cheap (especially used), Fast AF, Barely visible distortion, tough build

    Summary: I bought this lens used, and for the money, it is one of the finest lens ever made, whatever format it is. It is a very capable performer and with the built-in stabilization of recent bodies takes the use of this lens even further.
