I bought this lens from B&H about a week ago. It was the only one I have seen anywhere in stock, and I grabbed it up instantly, and no others have appeared.

Complaining about the lens cap will be common to all reviews. It is a metal screw-on disc, that is hard to work unless the camera is facing up. Order a 43mm pinch lens caps when you order, along with a protective haze filter. Don't plan on a thick filter, such as a polarizing filter or a stack of filters, because you will cut off the corners of the image. Even though this is a standard quality Zuiko (expensive but not REALLY expensive) it has a metal (not plastic) connector linking it to the camera body. If you have lived your entire photographic life with a zoom lens, you may not like a prime. You do your framing by zooming your feet back and forth from the subject--or move the subject. Be careful at the rim of the Grand Canyon!

This lens is thin and light. It won't zoom, of course, but if you have 8 or 10 megapixels, you can crop and still leave respectable resolution. It's great for when your evolt series Olympus DSLR has to serve tourist duty or for holidays with the family. Auto focusing in low light is accurate and, although this is not really a macro, my rose pictures are quite presentable as are those of people.

If you already have one or more of the kit lenses for the 400/500 series, you probably have the 50mm point covered. If you want portability and don't mind the challenges of a prime, this might be for you. I suspect that it will be cheaper a few months down the road.

This lens was a catalyst for upgrading to an Olympus system (E-420) as I wanted portability and good IQ at the same time. It is perfect for the E-420 (or E-410) and this combination offers a great balance between portability and IQ -- plus an added bonus is that this combo is so much fun to use!

With this lens being a `prime' lens, you don't have zoom but a fixed range of 25mm (50mm in 35mm terms) which is similar to your own natural eye's view of the world. It makes for great street-photography and keeps you fitter as your legs take over zoom duties! This style of shooting make for more fun and demands more thought in composing your shots which will only improve your skill in photography. Another thing I noticed is that you can capture more natural shots where your subject does not negatively react because it is a very discreet lens; in contrast to sticking a zoom in someone's face. Gone is the problem of being paranoid in looking like a photographic geek, journalist or goofy traveller with a zoom dangling from your neck-- and that can be priceless in itself.

Image Quality wise, I find it great considering how ultra-light and compact it is. Naturally, there are primes which are sharper and can control CA better, but that are three times thicker and heavier, so there are always trade-offs. The key attraction for this lens is extreme portability and I find it easy to choose when to use this lens before I set off. It is a great feeling of freedom knowing you can just slap on this lens and go on a journey without feeling hindered and knowing you will still get some great shots. I don't think any other brands offers anything like this, so it is unique in the marketplace. Even the excellent Pentax Limiteds are quite heavy and not quite as thin.

The 4/3s system sorely lacked a nice normal lens. The Leica is grossly overpriced at nearly or sometimes over $1000. Although this lens is nearly not as fast as the Leica, optically, its brilliant, especially when considering the size. This lens is the perfect walk around lens and is great on the E-xx0 cameras. I tried using it on the E-1, but it felt a little funny, but I almost never take it off my E-500. The lens does very well wide open an dis great for evening/night shots when you're walking around.

However, there are some problems that you will see with this lens, which is why I gave it only 4 stars. One of the most notable problems is the barrel distortion. This is very visible if you take an architectural shots. Also, if you shoot in very bright conditions, the lens does show a fair amount of CA and this can only be corrected in post processing. However, if you shoot B&W this won't be an issue.

Ultimately, for the price and size, this is an excellent lens, although I wouldn't recommend it for any critical work. I recommend this lens highly.

I am using this lens on a Panasonic Lumix L1 and took it to a large party/rehearsal dinner where people were frantically milling and mingling around and I really enjoyed weaving in and out of the crowd snapping candids with this lens. It was so refreshing not having to worry about fiddling with a zoom ring and allowed for rapid point and shoot style shooting that gave me a great advantage in capturing the flurry of the moment and great candids.

I only gave it 4 stars because of the following: 1) as others have stated in photo forums, this lens, after you screw it on about 2/3's the way, the last 1/3 of the twist is very hard to do because it is a extremely tight fit so much so that it feels wrong. None of my other Olympus lens' fit like this -- they all twist on firmly with ease. 2) this is the first Olympus lens I've purchased that is made in China (all my other ones are made in Japan) 3) I feel this lens in over-priced for a fixed lens, especially a pancake that has very little glass in it and is also made in China -- this lens should cost around $150. (Because of the bad fit, I may send this back and try another one to see if it fits better)

For those of you who own a Lumix L1, I can tell you this is the lens that should have been supplied with the camera as a kit lens -- it changes the whole attitude and functionality of the camera, and finally, the L1 has a lens that matches its range-finder body style. This lens just encourages the joy of shooting by enabling you to concentrate on your subjects.
