Style Name: 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZColor: Black
Before I bought the lens, I had read many negative comments, pointing to the slow f/6.3 at the tele end. Yes, it's slow. But that's just one aspect of the lens.

Compared to other kit lens, you get a wider 24mm equivalent, weather-sealed body and the macro mode.

This lens reminds me of those lens you find on compact cameras. Wide and with macro. Now, it's available on the Micro Four Thirds, well, in a much larger body.

It's smaller than I expected. Its height is close to the zoomed out standard kit lens. This lens is fixed in size because the zooming is internal.

It's made of mainly hard plastic and weighs 212g. It's light. The standard kit from Olympus weighs 113g and Panasonic 165g.

It's great there are two colours for this lens. I bought the black one to go with my black camera. It looks good together. I think contrasting colours of the lens and camera will draw unwanted attention.

The lack of any lens information marking on the front is a nice design touch which makes it discreet.

Olympus still can't find it in themselves to include a lens hood. This one uses the Olympus LH-55B Lens Hood which is used with the Olympus 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 lens

The focusing ring is smooth and nice to turn. This ring also functions as a zoom mode selector for macro mode, manual or electronic zoom.

The electronic zoom is well implemented and it's really made for video. The smooth zoom is great for video and the speed depends on how much you turn the ring.

Style Name: 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZColor: Black Verified Purchase
This is going to be a rave, five star review of a product, so let me get my complaints about the vendor out of the way up front. Amazon offered this through an outfit I never heard of before, Electronics Basket LLC, at 22.6% off list, which at the time I bought it was the only discount price I could find for this lens. The day after I got it, they started offering it from Sunset Electronics at 25% off, but such is life. The really annoying part is the packaging I received it in: only an unlabeled white box with no instructions and no guarantee card. The lens was wrapped in transparent blue plastic pressure tape, which might have been original from Olympus, I don't know. In any case, I have no guarantee on a lens that obviously has very complex construction! Fortunately, it operates flawlessly and it has more than lived up to my expectations.

I've been into M4/3 now for 11 months, with an E-M5 for 10 months (started with a Panasonic G3), and before getting this 12-50mm Olympus M.ZUIKO, I had acquired nine M4/3 lenses, so wound up with some redundancy and could sell off a couple without losing functionality, and here I am, getting more redundancy with this 12-50mm -- although not quite. There's really nothing else quite like this lens in the M4/3 arsenal and it is by far the most versatile lens I have. I have the incredibly fine Lumix 14-45mm but I'm often in a situation where I need to go wider and I knew this from the start, and so also bought the very flary 7-14mm Lumix, which I mostly use just for the 2mm below 14mm. Amazingly, I didn't even realize the M.ZUIKO 12-50mm existed until a few weeks ago, and I was blown away by the description of all its functionality, and so had to have it!

Style Name: 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZColor: Black
From day one, the micro-four-thirds line-up has been flooded with 14mm zooms. Need a standard zoom for basic day-to-day usage? You can have one of the 14-42s, a 14-45, a 14-140, or even a 14-150. Take your pick. Everywhere you looked it was 14mm, 14mm, ad nauseam, 14mm. I'm not too keen on the physics behind each lens, but reasoning tells me that the choice of focal-length was probably due to physics rather than a decision made in a shadowy dark room by a band of sinister lens-designers whose main evil plot was to chain everyone into shooting 14mm. Although most of the zooms are great in their own quirky little ways, they're frustratingly not wide enough to actually be wide. Enter the 12-50mm. (Note: I would mention the 7-14 or the 9-18, but they're both priced way out of the standard-zoom bracket. And well, they're really not standard zooms.)

In the end, what matters most in a zoom is how it feels in-use and how it renders. From my experience, the 12-50mm hits the spot on both accounts. The cool thing about the 12-50mm is that it has all has all these zoom levers covered in a series of neat clicks right at the tip of your fingers. When needed or preferred, you can click the the barrel of the lens down and leave it in a tactile zoom position. From the latter position, you can click it forward and the lens magically turns into a power-zoom. And if you feel like getting close to some bugs and shooting macro, you simply hold the macro button down on the lens and shift the lever all the way forward. The lens suddenly transforms into a macro. Before I received the lens, I wasn't expecting this. To be honest, I was just expecting a 12mm zoom that would cover a good range when I needed it. The implementation is quite clever and definitely caught me by surprise.
