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.Read more ›
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!

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.Read more ›
