    A nice alternative to the 12-60, August 29, 2009

    I have the 11-22mm Oly lens (which is a fabulous lens) but wanted a little longer coverage for day-to-day use. Rave reviews for the original version of this lens convinced me I needed it. The 12-60mm is another highly rated lens, but I have the wide end covered, so this was a great alternative. It’s also several hundred dollars cheaper, so it was an easy choice for me.

    My E-30 can take advantage of the ‘High-speed imager AF’ for use in LiveView, but some other Oly cameras cannot so you might as well get the original 14-54mm in that case if you can. That’s really the only thing the “II” model brings to the table.

    It’s a beautiful lens, with superb image quality as its predecessor is well-known for. There are lots of reviews and tests out on the web, they all agree on what a great lens this is. The 12-60mm is certainly a top lens, so if you want things a little wider and longer, it may be the right choice for you if you only have room for one lens. This one would not let you down though!

    Excellent Prime Zoom for E-620, October 3, 2009

    Updated Review (September 17, 2011).

    I now have used both Zuiko 12-60mm f2.8-3.5 SWD, as well as Zuiko’s flagship 14-35mm f2 SWD, now it’s time for a comparative review. I am also more competent with Four Thirds system now, so hopefully it’ll help prospective buyers even further (lens is a big investment). In depth reviews will be available for each lens in their respective Amazon page, so please look for them.

    I believe this lens is the best bang for the money. It is most suitable for most people who is looking for a size/cost/performance balance. Its optical performance is very competitive. However, it is the circular diaphragm with seven-blades that makes this lens stand much higher above than other brands’ offerings of similar price.

    Size:
    The reviewed lens is the shortest of the three Zuiko lenses I mentioned. While Zuiko 12-60mm SWD is only marginally larger, it extends much longer than 14-54mm II, so keep that in mind. Zuiko 14-35mm SWD is very big to begin with, and it doesn’t extend outward much at all when zoomed out. All three lenses are shortest at their shortest focal length.

    Weight.
    Their weights are 440g vs 575g vs 900g (15.5oz vs 20.3oz vs 31.7oz), with 14-54mm II the lightest and 14-35mm SWD the heaviest (no surprise there). Couple them with E-620, E-30, and E-5 respectively for best balance. Though matching the lens with the body one step up/down won’t pose a problem. I rented 14-35mm SWD to use with my E-620 and I can say it’s not a good match in term of balance.

    Optics:
    Very excellent. Minimal distortion. Manageable CA (usually around corner when using toward the widest end. Very clean and uniform CA, so it’s the fixable with software). Vignette might be a problem under certainly lighting, but not a deal breaker. If you have an E-620, this is the lens I recommend because of value. I would recommend 12-60mm SWD for its marginally sharper image under pixel peeping. That lens’s edge-to-edge sharpness is higher, but this one is already better than competitors, so it’s not a big issue unless you’re really scrutinizing every detail. Center sharpness is pretty much the same. This lens has the advantage over Zuiko 12-60mm SWD in aperture schedule. This lens doesn’t reach f3.5 end until it hits 54mm. The higher end Zuiko 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 SWD however, is f2.9 at 14mm and reaches f3.5 as early as 27mm, so it is in fact, the slower of the two lenses. So you’d have to make the decision: do you prefer sharpness or speed? Absolute sharpness, go for 12-60mm SWD. If you prefer more flexible aperture range, this lens is your friend.

    If you have money and don’t mind the weight, go for 14-35mm f2 SWD as it is the best of two worlds. It has absolutely no noticeable vignette or other optical defects. That lens is Super High Grade for a reason.

    Auto-focus:
    If you use PDAF (through the lens type, the kind used by traditional SLR and when you use optical viewfinder), both 12-60mm and this lens are good performer. Surprisingly, 14-35mm SWD is the slowest on E-620 (I don’t know how it performs on E-5 with updated firmware).

    If you use CDAF (continuous focus, the type of focus when you use LCD LiveView to focus or for tracking focus), this lens is the fastest as it has High Speed Imager Auto Focus mode, which is the same as Olympus Pen’s, so you can use this lens on Olympus Pen cameras with adapter with minimal penalty on AF speed. SWD type of AF is most beneficial when using PDAF or when using MF, as it is mechanically coupled (which means you can do manual focus even when you’re on auto focus mode, which is very beneficial when you like to MF. I always AF first then fine tune with MF so SWD is very very good for me).

    Other perks:
    This uses 67mm filter thread. That means, you can share filter with the excellent Zuiko 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD for a complete 14-200mm system without the “filter tax.” Yes, quality filters are expensive. Cheap filters deteriorate your lens’s quality. Keep in mind the three lenses I am talking about here are all High Grade (HG) and up lenses. At least get yourself Hoya HMC UV(C) Filter – UV – 67 mm or my favorite Sigma EX DG 67mm Multi-Coated UV Filter to protect the front element from scratches (which happens when you clean your lens) or salt water/sand damage when you go to a beach. Yes, this lens is weather proof, so only front element is most susceptible to the damage I mentioned. I’ve never had any of my Zuiko HG 4/3 lenses experiencing fogging or dust particles inside or any problem like that for the past two years. Weather seal does…
