5 out of 5 eggsPricey, but worth it

Pros: Excellent focal range, pretty fast (light), fast focus (especially on the E-3 or E-30).

Cons: Price, but it's worth it!

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my 14-54 because I wanted a wider lens with more reach. It was the only lens I took on an 18 day European trip and never missed any of my other lenses. If I could only have one lens, this would be it, without any doubt!
