It works as advertised... small, unobtrusive and it's speed opens a whole new world of low light photography and video.reviewed December 7th, 2009 (purchased for $400)
It has the typical panasonic plastic construction but it's really very solid feeling. Much better than Canon and Nikon consumer lenses.
Some would fault it for not being stabilized, but its speed makes up for it.
