Tamron 14-150 3.5-5.8 di 111

Does anyone have any experience of this lens? The Oly 14-150 is a little pricey so this may be an alternative for me as part of a `Pen F kit`. Yes, I know it is not weather sealed but that is not critical for me. Got a chance of getting a nearly-new example at a great price.

I got one on here for a friend and she's really pleased with it. Pretty much uses it all the time.

I've got one and fairly happy with it. There are several reviews on the web that a quick Google will throw up. It's not quite in the class of Olympus and Panasonic equivalents, but is a lot cheaper. I mainly use it now on my IR converted EM-5.

I've got one and also happy with it. Nice easy carry around when I don't want to take my heavier lenses about. Think it would be a fine choice with a Pen F.
