Having used the Sigma 10-20 and Tamron 10-24 with Nikon DSLRs, the OLy has at least as good performance but the OLy+camera is lighter than either of the other lenses alone!
Makes a great setup for architecture and travel.
Who could ask for more?

I would like something faster than F4. I’ve used my bro’s Tokina 11-16/2.8 on a Canon and that’s a sweet UWA lens.

Then again, I still might get this lens for my E-PL2 since the only other real option (the Pany 7-14/4) is way bigger and more expensive.

I hope the 3rd party companies who joined m43 would release some m43 specific lenses soon.

$700.00 for a slow lens - so slow that stopping down one stop introduces diffraction.

Is there a design issue I’m not aware of here or do small lenses have small engineers.

Recommended as iy makes a good balance on a m4/3 body. I´ve had it with an OMD EM10 and was really happy since was a smaller combo almost my sigma 10-20. But it´s worse optically sepaking from the Sigma and my sony a37. Pictures have a “plain” feel, as if you are photographing a 2D world. Correct sharpness, good CA control, amazing flare control. But images looked pretty flat and boring to me, so I´ve sold it.
