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.

You do need this lens. If you got an E-something-'er-ether and are thinking you want to try out a small, prime, faster lens and you are on the fence about it; let me knock you off.

It is "that much faster". In a room at 9am with 2 big windows, F2.8 it shoots at 320. This is a feat the kit F4 would have to struggle with at 25. In the sun, 11am, f2.8 I found it to shoot at 3200-4000 until with good white brick reflections it was overexposed and I had to pull it down to f16 (at which point it still shot in the 200 range. The sharpness is suburb throughout.

If you have had difficulties with the kit lens's manual focus you will be impressed with this. The focusing is smooth and firm and the subject can be pulled into frame in split seconds. The action feels comfortable and natural with the left thumb as you clamp the top with the remaining fingers.

It has a metal gasket that makes a tight fit. I'm not planing on putting mine to the test on purpose soon, but I would imagine it could stand up to some good wind blown dust and sprinkler mist that plagues us so. It seams to be built of a metal shell with plastic or resin coverings and the feel of it in your hands is like a little stone to skim across the pond.

The kit lenses have a small skip at times when powering down, that of which I have not experienced at all with this.

But it's not all great. The cap has been demeaned with all sorts of profanities and I completely know why. I managed to drop it twice on the first run! You may imagine it's raised but it is actually recessed with the exception of a small serrated ring. You have to push down and spin, there is nothing to pinch or pull.

I can guarantee you will be happy with it.
