I wouldn't throw it away if it was included for free, but I don't ever see bringing it in my bag or choosing it over the Panasonic 14mm, which is a very inexpensive lens with full aperture control and focusing...

That said, it could be handy for street photography as there is no need to try to preset the focus distance for maximum depth of field, which is a bit challenging on MFT lenses with no focus distance scale.
