I've used Nikon 3200 for decade and recently purchased a new Olympus Pen e pl 10 camera wanted something with a bit more range than 14-42 mm it came with. Love this lens - so light weight like nothing at all- pictures are Amazing! Delivered earlier than expected.

I wanted to try a telephone lens, didn't want to spend a lot of money not knowing if I would like the focal length. This lens was the right price and I couldn't be happier. It is light weight and super sharp.

Decent budget telephoto lens

This lens makes sense in a cost/value comparison. At one tenth the cost of the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 lens (which I also own), it's practically free. These days, you can easily spend $150 going out to dinner with a few friends. At only 6.7 oz., it's super light and won't be making your belt tighter and wallet thinner, unlike that fried catfish, cornbread, and beer you had the other night. Realistically, this lens is all plastic, has mediocre optical performance, doesn't autofocus particularly well, is a poor lens for macro photography, isn't fast enough for indoors or low light, and isn't sharp enough for good portraits or detailed landscapes. It fails to produce the high quality images that the Olympus E-M5 or E-M1 or Panasonic GH5 can deliver. It is not water resistant and therefore neither is your camera when you have this lens attached. Looking only at image quality, it's glaringly inferior to the more expensive telephoto zoom lenses from Olympus and Panasonic. It's also clearly inferior in optical performance compared to the very nice Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 kit lens, which is surprisingly sharp, does very nice macros, portraits, and landscapes, and is also compact and lightweight. But that lens costs $600. I own all of these lenses and have made detailed back to back comparisons under identical conditions. This $150 lens is not my first, or second, or even third choice to put on the camera when I'm going out shooting. Here's a photography rule that was true up until smartphones came along, because they cheat with software. Always put the best glass on your camera that you can afford or manage to carry. Always. So why own it? Once again, it's practically free. It's super lightweight and compact. You can carry it around it rough conditions and if it breaks, throw it away and get another. You can put a $10 UV filter on the front instead of the $40 one. If the grocery store sold camera lenses, this would be in the hamburger case and the 40-150mm f/2.8 lens would be in the filet mignon case. Sometimes, you buy both places. Sometimes, we have hamburgers at home and enjoy them very much. Sometimes, I'm using my camera for casual snapshots, or low resolution internet images, or rough travel conditions. Those circumstances occur often enough to justify spending $150 for this lens.

question

is this lens FULLY compatible with Xiaomi Yi M1 camera in Both Stills AND Video modes?
Asked by: Ermanno P.
Unfortunately, Im not familiar with the Xiaomi Yi M1 camera. It is not a camera that B&H carries, nor have I seen one. If it has a micro four thirds mount, this lens should be compatible. But, it would be impossible to comment on the level of compatibility between an Olympus lens and a third party camera.

Would I be able to control this lens if used with a black magic studio camera?
Asked by: Duane
The Black Magic website indicates their lens mount is active 4/3 so it should work. You could always return the lens after a quick test if it doesn’t work out. If the lens is anything like the Pro version, you’ll love shooting with - light weight and good optics.
