Lots of bang for the buck

Got it used for 125€. Initially gave it 3,5 stars based on brickwall tests but had to raise to 4 after half a year of real world use though I pixel peep frequently (must stop that now that I know there's nothing to be worried about). It's very worthy of its good reputation. Though it's best at mid range and stopped down 1-2EV (as is almost every lens), it's eminently usable at all FL's and apertures. Originally, I planned to replace it with a Zuiko 12-40 when I have saved some money, but now I find it hard to justify the expense.
