lesley, Lonodn Am an Olympus nut!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Its tiny size makes my equally tiny camera (E620) virtually pocket size, while its big brother can do the "heavy" stuff. My Olympus family is now, hopefully, complete.
Bad points:
Can't think of any offhand

Shafik, Lisbon

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful, compact and bright lens. It gives a nice "boukeh" - it blurs backgrounds nicely, although not as nicely as a f 1.4 or f.1.8 lens. Wonderful to photograph under low light conditions.
Bad points:
Nothing bad to report.

john, daventry

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact size and light - makes the most of the Olympus 620 light body weight. Good aperture for a reasonably priced lens and didn't we all just used to manage with a fixed focal length most of the time, anyway? Very handy lens.
Bad points:
A clip on lens cap rather than the screw on would be easier to use but that's a quibble.

I read a review fo this product which said the zoom was dificult to operate. Don't be misled. The zoom is impossible to operate - there isn't one!
