    Cons: I am disappointed by the build quality of this expensive lens. My camera fell from aproximatly 50 cm and the metall bajonett ring broke away. It is fixed with three screws into three plastic threads. These threads broke and the lens was destroyed and couldn\'t be repaired anymore

    Pros: good optical quality, good focal length range

    Summary: Could be an excellent standart zoom lens for my camera. But I won\'t buy it again because of this cheap construction

    Cons: None.

    Pros: Very high build quality. Very practical focus length range. Only 300 gram.

    Summary: I use this length for most of my shooting because it is sharp and includes all the focus lengths I need. Only for portraits I prefer the 42.5 mm f/1.7 for the better depth-of-field isolation.

    Cons: Aperture drop too fast in zooming.

    Pros: AF is super fast and quiet. Excellent sharpness. Very good chromatic aberration correction. Good magnification ratio for a standard zoom lens. Very low focus-breathing. Parfocal. Weather-sealed.

    Summary: It performs very well in both still and video. The best standard zoom lens for MFT system. As a parfocal lens, it\'s really cheap.
