    Price: (kit lens)

    Cons: Chromatic aberrations, barrel distortion (though Olympus' bodies have in-camera correction)

    Pros: Large angle of view, consistent image quality, speed, size, brightness

    Summary: Nice as a kit lens, expensive otherwise. Lots of resolution and detail, good brightness and excellent portability, but chromatic aberrations and sensitivity to lateral light let its side down. All in all a joy to use.
