9 out of 10 points and recommendedfast lense, very sharp, very good contrastslow AF, no focus range limiter
An excellent lens, not only as Macro, but also very good as moderate tele and as portrait lens.reviewed January 23rd, 2008
Combination with EC-20 works as an excellent 4/100 Telemakro up to 1:1.

A very good tele lens, high contrast and very sharp. Can be used with TC-14 and with TC-20 without visible loss in quality, even with maximum aperture! So you can get an very good 2,8/210 and a very good 4/300, too!reviewed January 23rd, 2008
10 out of 10 points and recommendedWide range 24-120 KB equivalent, good optical quality, Fast AFnone
The best lens available if you don't want to change lenses.reviewed January 23rd, 2008
Sharper and with less chromatic aberation than the 11-22!
Using maximum aperture there is a little vignetting, if you take pictures of the sky, but if you use a RAW-Converter, you can correct this with one mouse click.

I use this lens mostly on a E-420. The combination is almost anytime with me, when I leave the house.reviewed August 12th, 2008
Optical quality is fine, aperture of 2.8 is enough in almost all cases. I even use the lens for AL-picture in Jazz clubs (with the E-3)!
The screw-in lens-hood, made of aluminum is ideal for using the camera without any bag. You cannot lose it and it protects the glas very well.
10 out of 10 points and recommendedHas the quality of excellent primesPrice (but cheaper than 3 primes with 14 mm, 25mm and 35 mm)
An outstanding lens with fast AF. I use it almost solely in concerts, where I need the open aperture. Combined with the E-3 (with its IF) it is as good as a Nikon D3 (my personal opinion of course).reviewed October 8th, 2008 (purchased for $2,200)
The lens is very sharp, even in the corners of the picture. No vignetting, no blur. No problems with against the light shots (but use the sun blade)
For me it is not too heavy or too large. Of course on a E-420 it looks a little bit funny. And of course it is not a lens for hiking (Therefore you should use the 12-60).
