I bought one for my EP1 two months ago. Very useful, easy to use and very nice results especially in the medium range (100mm). Of course more difficult to use in low light.

Nice review, but i would like to see how this lens handles shooting video on Olympus Pen. Lens has little sound - like plastic chafing plastic, at least mine has, when using zoom and you can hear it loudly when recording or playback.
Has anybody similar problems? Otherwise it´s a bang for a buck lens and delivers excellent pics.

The lens being advertised by Amazon in your review is a Four Thirds mount and would need an adapter to mount it on a PEN camera body. Presumably that is why it is priced at £149.99. The question now is which lens did you test. Was it the Four Thirds or the M Zuiko for the Micro Four Thirds ?
Your job is to clarify things for us, not to lead us into a sea of ambiguity !

Another poster commented on the 11th of September that you are linking to the normal 4/3rds zoom in your “cheapest price” affiliate link. THIS LENS IS NOT FOR MICRO 4/3rds!

Are you ever going to fix the link and link to the m.Zuiko version? Even if it is more expensive?

I have broken off plastic mount plate after slipping backwards on wet ground in a very gentle fall, whilst the camera+lens was in a well padded rucksack. Enough said on durability.
Any ideas for fixing the plastic mount?

Does anyone know if this lens is good for sports photography and generally capturing fast shots?
