    Cons: Maximum f4; distortion from 12 till 17mm; vignetting at maximum aperture (there is no DxO module yet)

    Pros: Constant aperture, close focus, razor sharp, light weight, solid build, sensible zoom of 12-45mm (24-90mm equiv).

    Summary: Good \'go anywhere and everywhere\' companion for my OM-D EM1-ii. It is a light, smallish and versatile lens with constant aperture that delivers very sharp pictures from corner to corner. F4 might seem limiting; I got it to replace my d.zuiko 12-60 which broke down and which I mostly used at minimum f4 anyway. Close focus one can still get nice buttery backgrounds (I use brighter primes for dedicated work). Only a real shame that these MFT lenses all rely on software correction of optical problems.
