9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp, fast, well built, good dynamic rangeI am not prone to use my other lenses after I bought this one
I own an Olympus E410 four thirds camera with two kit lenses. This lens is my first "second" lens.reviewed March 23rd, 2008
The first 100 shots were awfully soft and out of focus. But this was my first attempt at shooting inside in natural low light situations.
A couple of 100 shots more and this lens performs beautifully. I have now tamed the lens and is able to use it optimally under almost any condition.
I can see that it gives me more dynamic range than with the kit lenses. The kit lenses burn out the sky more often. This lens is almost not prone to this. At first I thought the camera was to blame. But I can see now that you get what you pay for.
Landscape and portrait shooting is a delightful experience with this lens. I have stopped using my flashlight.
I can very much recommend this lens
Take your time getting to know the performance of this lens and it will serve you well.
