The perfect zoom?

I can be quite picky about lenses and their performance, but this lens is as close to perfect as a zoom can be in my opinion.

It is extremely light, small, Very (!) sharp, has a good contrast and a very good zoom range. It is the perfect travel companion and easily slips into a small pocket or bag. The AF is superfast and it locks on the subject so fast that one barely notices any time lagging from pressing the shutter until the picture is taken.

Anything less good then? Well there is a plastic mount which looks fragile, but compared to a metal one that is also what helps to keep the weight down. Considering also the low price this glass can have nothing less than 5 very well deserved stars. So far I have not noticed any shortcomings and it is a pleasure to use. Even though not the fastest aperture, it is still perfectly usable on max zoom even in an overcast day on a m43 body.
