Some people like to print photos larger than a postcard and compact cameras with tiny sensors suck for that, this lens will work well for video also.

Why do you think a 16MP MFT camera with a dog slow superzoom will be better for printing large photos than a 16mp bridge camera with a 10x zoom? What magic quality, at base ISO, do you think an MFT sensor brings to the party? And do you not see that in low light an f5.8 lens will need the ISO cranked right up, thus losing any noise advantage the MFT camera had? I normally sell 30X40 inch shots myself, and I won't be touching this thing with a 30 foot, rubber tipped, disinfected bargepole. Wearing gloves.

So you sell 30X40 prints made using a bridge camera with a 10X zoom? O.o

No,  I'd not touch a 10x lens.  That's my point.
