    Cons: Closest focus distance larger than other equivalent lenses. Slow to focus in low light. Needs good light to show it\'s capabilities.

    Pros: Everything else! Outstanding image and colour rendition in good light. Produces beautiful portraits, particularly at distance. Ideal for \'moody people at a distance\' portraiture. Relatively fast lens for a big zoom range.

    Summary: I love this lens! I have almost every Zuiko 4/3 lens now. I know them all intimately. This lens has produced my very favourite images in my collection. It just makes me smile in awe and joy. (By contrast the MK2 version is just horrible by comparison).

    Cons: A little slow of F4.5 at the long end.

    Pros: Outstanding. Thought that it is just another kit lens and has been in storage for a while. Have a try on Olympus E3 and EM1, and was totally blown away. Some of the photos taken are similar to the pro grade Olympus 50-200mm F2.8-3.5 lens, and at a much lower weight and much cheaper price. Its image quality is not too far off from some of the good M43 prime lenses. A really pleasant surprise to me.

    Summary: Highly recommended to get one if you have the faster autofocus Oly E-series cameras or M43 camera with phase detection like em5 iii, em1, em1 mkii, etc.

    Cons: Slow noisy focus motor. Bigger and heavier than the newer Mk2. Looks like a weather proof piece, but its not.

    Pros: Sharp as a tack at all focal lengths if you get a good one. Good color rendition. Older than the Mk2 but faster glass, f3.5 vs f4.0. Steel mount vs plastic on the Mk2.

    Summary: Great lens that can be bough anytime for $100.00 US, must have for an entry level lens, much better than the Mk2 kit lens. Spend $100.00 and see for yourself, your Mk2 will collect dust.

    Cons: Min focusing distance approx 6 ft.

    Pros: No detectable defects that would be seen in prints up to16x20. One of the best $ values for any lens.

    Summary: Highly Recommend to anyone.
