For me, its made an old camera new again as I keep it close ready to shoot with.
THE GOOD - 35mm equivalent of 28mm - 84mm for my M 4/3 format camera is just right for what I'm using it for. Lens quality is good, pretty sharp, not that fast but for what I'm using it for its great. I'm using it for work and take 100-200 images a day of boat parts, on the ocean, parts and damage. Overall good lens for the money. 600 plus images so far, good.
THE OK - Although I knew this before buying it, its not great for close work. If you need macro capabilities this isn't your lens but does work well at 7-8 inches. With the good image quality of my old E-P2, shooting in RAW I can get get really good cropped images so I haven't really 'needed' macro capabilities. Olympus sells a macro screw on adapter (don't like adapters too much) and I may buy and try.
THE BAD - For Me - Nothing.
Images seem pretty clear, but not as sharp as any of the primes (25mm or 45mm M.Zuiko).
I was hoping that it would save me from having to land and switch lenses for various shots, but I guess not...it's a nice lens and good enough to use and have fun with. Don't know that it's good enough for professional jobs.
For hobbyist and people having fun i think it's a good lens ..like usual, you get what you pay for (and it isn't a very expensive lens). Worth the money it costs? Definitely ..I'm just trying to be honest for other Inspire pilots that are considering getting one. Hopefully this helps anyone who's on the fence about the purchase.
This is a great walk-around lens that gives me the range that I want without the bulk of the kit lens. I am using it on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 and the two together are an awesome combination. Focus is quick, Zoom is powered which is a bit different from every other M4/3 lens that I have in my kit. But I am slowly getting used to that. I do wish that Olympus would include the lens cap that automatically opens with this lens. I will probably spring for that at some point, hopefully before I lose the simple cap that came in the box.
