Just great

You just can't go wrong with this lens. Aside the cost, the lens is a great little performer with a lot to offer ... highly recommended!

Best bang for the buck.

Fantastic IQ and super light.  The only minor complaint is that it's a bit too light and I have to be careful with vibrations when the lens is at the longer end.  Putting the camera on a beanbag really helps.

I can't agree more. I tend to shoot outdoors with this lens with a lot of natural light ... with high shutter speed you really don't need image stabilization.

Yep - here's an example

Couldn't agree more. The following is at 150mm, and cropped to boot.

I almost forgot to mention - this was before I had LR4 to remove the CAs.

Here are some too...

I had gotten my copy of this lens when I had an EPL1, but didn't use it on the Panasonics I had after that as it really does need stabilization at the long end (due to its lightness, especially).  However, with the EM1 now, I have had some really good results with it.

Amazing photos guys. I just stepped into M43 and I can tell you I really like it. Even inexpensive lenses are performing very very well.
