A good wide zoom.
I have had this lens since its release. The fact it is my most commonly used lens says it all.
Optically very good though not as sharp as my Lumix 14-45mm/ G1 combination.
Not the best balance with my K5, and it causes vignetting when built in flash used.
One of its virtues is its close focus ability.
