    Cons: Barrel distortions, chromatic aberrations apparent even when stopped.

    Pros: Fully usable wide open, very sharp, relatively quick focus, highly flare resistant. Diminutive size and weight. Well built

    Summary: Fantastic lens, given what it is - a smallest 4/3 lens. It is remarkably sharp in the center, and a bit softer on the borders. Depending on conditions, it can vignette quite strongly, which is not a big deal tho. It is better than 14-54 at 35mm, tho it barrels a bit more. This lens is grossly underestimated, as it performs

    Cons: Barrel distortion and only 2.8 (2.0 is desired), some CA, a little sub-par contrast.

    Pros: Sharpness (even wide open, especially at close and middle distanses, corners are the same as the center), resolution, colours, min. focusing distance is small.

    Summary: It is a little wonder, no front/back focus, a fine lens.

    Cons: This annoying lens cap ..How i wish it was f2.0 ! Strangely exagerated the greens in some shots

    Pros: Excellent colors, bokeh, Sharp across the frame even at F2.8, great results strangely at f7.1, not f4, f5.6 - f8 - sweet spot. Reds seem very good. Renders warmer / yellower every other shot - i like that

    Summary: Some magnificent results can be had with this little wonder .. Low light / nightlight photography can produce superb shots. Bokeh is quite pleasing at f2.8 - using it on a L1 body. After processing the results with own preset in Aperture, results came out like shot with Nokton, or Astro-Berlin or something Leica - beautifully rich and textured

    Cons: F2.8, is too slow for a prime. Doesn't focus close. Sometimes hunts for focus.

    Pros: Tiny, makes, an SLR look like a point and shoot. Sharp, decent in low light, especially compared to the kit.

    Summary: This lens is really small, its fun to bring along when going out at night, and its size does not decrease image quality. Low profile means less attention. 25mm is also a great focal length, matching normal vision.

    Cons: - visible barrel distortion when shooting architecture - some chroma aberration when stopped down - screw-in cap needs good fingers and practice

    Pros: - light weight - keeps enough resolution/contrast even in difficult light conditions with strong back light - flare resistance - fast focusing, much better than the kit lenses in low light focusing - build quality, metallic mount - screw-in cap protects the front element like a panzer and never falls off accidentally

    Summary: One of my favorite lenses, good for street photo, low light, night city photo, great fit with smaller bodies like e-4xx, e-6xx
