Eddie's take on it
Four Thirds' ultimate plastic-fantastic lens, this is one of those lenses that made Four Thirds such a popular system among amateurs in late 00's.
Small, light and sharp. Over 10 years later I look through pictures I have taken with this lens and I am amazed.
For travel or if you don't want to carry around a larger telephoto, this was one of the best options you could buy in '00s.
If you want weather sealing, slightly more reach and brighter apertures, take a look at the Olympus 50-200mm (or its SWD variant), though it is much larger and heavier. If you want more reach, go for the Olympus 70-300mm.
Olympus produced lots of these and people bought lots of them. This is unlikely to ever become a collectable.
