    A solidly built bright professional tool. Together with 40-100 mm it forms a professional segment of the Olympus brand. Even the marking on the lens is engraved which speaks for itself about the high quality of its heavy body.
    Photos are very sharp, even at the maximum open aperture f/2.8, even at the edges. Natural but rich colors and beautiful and soft bokhe. Autofocus is very fast, even in low light, which works perfectly. Have noticed that the built-in aspherical elements counteract image distortions very well. Despite the fact that the lens changes in length, you will not get any dust inside because this lens is dust and waterproof. With its lens, all photo assignments can be easily performed from landscape photo to portrait.
    In combination with any camera from Olympus 14-40 mm f/2.8 PRO lies well and firmly in the hands and looks good.
    Highly recommended for any photographer.

    Expensive but high image quality

    • Lighter and smaller than my DSLR lens
    • One aperture across the range
    • Excellent sharpness
    • In the box only a textile pouch, no lens case

    Very nice reporting lens, good for landscapes, street photography, and portraits
