      This little lens is a gem. The price is right and its performance is crisp, bright and rewarding. A quality lens that you should grab, this one is a keeper. Autofocus is swift and true.

              I use this lens in all kinds of situations. It especially is fabulous in low light circumstances. It makes my Lumix gf3 so small it will fit in my pocket. A definite winner on all counts. A must for everyone.

                    I originally purchased the black 14-42mm E-P2 kit, and have enjoyed using the included lens. But the 17mm 2.8 was beckoning, finally available in matching black! It's tack sharp, nicely made, with great bokeh. Next up, the M. Zuiko telephoto...(!)
