    Cons: Purple CR on sharp contrasty edges is quite bad on this lens and my only complaint but it should not be with a Leica. Also, concerns of sucking in dust when zooming.

    Pros: Nice build quality and quick silent focus. Sharp and vibrant results. It is heavy but nice and compact.

    Summary: This 14-150 lens has more CR than it should have and makes for an unreliable photo. I recommend the Olympus 12-60 F3.5 or the Olympus 70-200 as much better quality unfortunately. I had higher expectations of this lens.
