It is an amazing lens and is even better on an omd than my e620 in picture quality. The big flaw is the incredibly slow and unreliable AF. Sometimes you can get a quick lock, but 50% of the time it takes 3-5 seconds and 49% of the time the AF simply fails. I use it when I know I will have time to MF.

My own experience is usually different.

Depending on light, subject, etc., I'd say that about 60% of my pictures get focused in less than 1 second (this with firmware 1.2, just upgraded my OM-D to 1.5, but haven't used it much yet).

AF searches back & forth maybe 10% of the time and fails altogether pretty rarely (< 5%?).
