Olympus M.ZUIKO 12-40mm f2.8 PRO

It feels reasonably well-balanced on the e-pl5, but the metal eyelet and its plastic holder on the left is really in the way of a good hold on the camera - I've removed them and put my Op-Tech wrist band on the right side (left the triangle and plastic cover on that lug). Loving the optical quality so far (only had the lens a few hours!)

Bought this lens because I got tired of constantly switching between 20 or 17mm and 45mm when I photographed people at events. I was missing too many opportunities while I switched.

I LOVE this lens. It rarely leaves the camera. Just bought a second body to put my Panasonic 35-100 on.
