Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Lightweight, sharp, a real bargain

Written by Zak Billmeier, Staff Writer - Creative, on 6/16/2015 4:04:00 PM

I bought this lens to go with my E-M10 camera, thinking it would be nice to have some extra reach (80-300mm equivalent) without spending a lot. The plan was to upgrade to one of the pro lenses in the same focal length at some point... but that plan has changed. This is one fantastic lens!

First of all, it's positively tiny for the amount of reach it provides. I was counting on this, because the size issue is what has drawn me to the micro 4/3 universe in the first place, but wow, is this lens tiny in person (and super easy to carry). It's not much bigger than one of the prime lenses I have in my kit.

But what has impressed me from the start is how crisp and sharp the images I get from this lens are. It focuses fast, too, and silently. It's not an indoor lens, but if you want to travel light I recommend it highly. Especially for the money, it's a real bargain.
