  • Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Digital

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    relatively light, low CA, smooth operation

    I've had this lens for a year and a half now, and it has become a huge favorite for taking on trips. I'm not a professional, but I am picky about image quality and very impressed with what this delivers, especially when one considers its size/price.

  • Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 ED M.Zuiko Digital

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    remarkably good performance for size/weight; very lightweight
    slow, best performance at 150 at f8

    This lens packs a tremendous amount of quality for something so light and inexpensive. At 45 mm, stopped down a bit, it's hard to tell any difference from my 45 mm f 1.8 prime. Even at full telephoto results are excellent at f 7.1, f8; a little soft but very acceptable at f 5.6. Minor issues with chromatic aberration, nothing major. Overall an excellent lens for MFT.
