Re: A bit negative, but essentially correct

Me, I like it. For travel is good. Light and weathersealed. My conclusions are in line with those of Tom although I use it on EPl1 so I may not notice the drop in performance it causes when used on OMD.

But video feature is nice, macro very nice and sharpness not a big issue for the money. I use it mainly at 12 mm where it's quite good (a poor man 12 mm prime). 12mm prime is very expensive and cannot justify. For low lightI use the PL m 25/1.4.


PS For traveling the weathersealing is just indispensable...just realized this these days....I was very happy having 12-50 whens howers started suddenly in Rome and were intermittent for al my vacation.
