reviewswhat are people saying

" Great lens, no bubble effect at edges, and very nice for the price."

"I found the lens solid in feel, easy to change, quick enough focussing"

bhphotovideo.com

"There is one complaint: The focusing is somewhat slower in my E-30 comparing to 14-42 lens, not to mention 12-60 SWD and 50-200 SWD."
