Excellent sharpness and contrast across to the edges. Excellent close up edge sharpness and can get view camera-like results. Very compact--my favorite wide angle.

Weakness:

None.

Need I say more.

Strength:

* Excellent quality optics, clear and reasonably contrasty
* Good rectilinear image but be careful not to introduce distortion through tilting the camer!
* Very small and light - about the same as the Zuiko 28/2.8
* Solid construction

Weakness:

None that I'm aware of

This is a very useful lens but needs care in composing/framing the shot. One of Olympus's best compact lenses (there is also a larger 21/2 but I haven't tried it). Quite easy to find on the used market for a reasonable price.

Customer Service

Not used.

Strength:

Amazingly compact & well made. Balances perfectly on all OM bodies

Weakness:

Absolutely none

Olypus at its very best: top quality in a tiny package. No other 21mm lens come near it even 20 years after it was designed. A complete joy to use.

Customer Service

Never needed - faultless

Similar Products Used: 30 cameras over as many years but always come back to my Olympus. The perfect system
