I am impressed too. Both with the superb photo and the excellent lens. I own it. Came as the kit lens with the EM5 and while I am selling off the camera, I have kept this one.

Great detail and some lovely contrast. It is easy to overlook the kit lenses.

I've not owned one but did try it when it first came out. Like many of the kit lenses, they exceed most peoples expectations.

Good picture by the way.
