    I bought this lens for my M4/3 Panasonic G9. I wanted an all in one lens for travel and this lens fit the bill. It is a consumer grade lens rather than a Pro lens, so one cannot expect the exact sharpness of a lens costing twice as much. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the image quality. I checket it for sharpness at 12mm, 100mm and 200mm and the lens did not disappoint. It is quite good throughout. Maybe not perfect for a pixel peeper, but plenty good for my travel needs.

    Zooming when aiming upward can be a little stiff. Great all around lens to have when traveling

    Bought it for as an all-around lens for travel, to be used with my Panasonic DMC-GX85. To date, took over 1000 pictures in all conditions. Overall, quite satisfied with its performance, as a replacement for the older Panasonic 14-140 MEGA OIS. On the negative side, a big complain: the zoom ring will not extend the lens if the lens is pointed upward and will not retract the lens if pointed downward – fighting the gravity is a problem for zoom cam. To make it work smoothly, one needs to extend it pointing downward and retract it pointing to the stars… It gets annoying after a while… I will report the problem to Olympus, hoping it is an isolated problem which can be fixed in warranty.

    Para quien quiera viajar sin tener que andar cargando con varios lentes, éste es el ideal.

    El único “pero” es el precio, por eso le puse 4 estrellas, pero para quien tome en serio la fotografía, vale la pena.

    This Olympus M.Zuiko 12-200mm came available just before my trip to Europe, the zoom range gave me the flexibility to use this lens most of the time. Admittedly I did use the lens on my Panasonic GH5 and GX85 not an Olympus camera, I was however expecting good and quick focus. Almost 15% of the pictures I took were soft or out of focus; some of that I can blame on Panasonic’s focusing system but with my Panasonic lenses it was about 5%. It was rare that I would get a good sharp picture zoomed in past 180mm, granted my photos were hand held and the lens has no internal stabilization, none the less my 100-300mm came out sharper hand held at full zoom. The lens focused slower than all my Panasonic lenses which caused my run and gun open top bus tour very frustrating. My attempts at video were even worse; I would not recommend it for that use. I was very satisfied with the color reproduction of the lens until I got into low light which is expected for a F3.5-6.3 Lens. When it rained the lens got even softer, condensation I assume. I am keeping the lens because of its flexibility for general purpose use, I would recommend a tripod for use past 100mm. Because of the cons, I give it 3.5 stars. A fair price for the lens would be $799.00, it is getting closer all the time.

    Pros:
    Best in class for zoom range 12-200mm, 16.6x zoom
    Best in class for its weight and body length in its zoom range.
    Available as Amazon Prime delivery

    Cons:
    Slow auto focus on Panasonic cameras
    Not on the list from Olympus for firmware updates
    I have been unable to see Peeking focus using this lens
    Stiff zoom ring past 150mm
    Zoom ring the opposite direction of Panasonic lenses
    No internal stabilization
    No manual focus switch on lens
    Price without stabilization
    Weather sealing questionable
    Lens sharpness at full zoom?

    First, I want to complain about all of the reviewers that say it is a “GREAT LENS FOR THE MONEY”…..Do you knoe what a really good lens is, in spite of price? I am not interested in these reviews. I want to know how good a lens is, and not see a qualification about being great for the money, or ok because it is not sold as a pro lens, or all of the other caveats that are presented by people who have no idea about what a good lens would be if it just was a good lens, regardless of price. When is a lens just good, and not “good for the money?” i think I have two or three of these right now.

    Maybe I just got a 12-200mm lens that was a result of poor quality control. But my lens is NOT sharp, ever. It is not terrible, but it consistently gives me second rate images. Yes, if you are willing to accept second best for all of your shots, this lens is for you. If you want typical tourist snapshots, get this one. But I am unwilling to pay $750 for a lens, complain about the size and weight, and then say it is worth it for the price. I DO NOT think this lens is great lens, regardless of the price. I would like to be told what IS a great lens covering that range, and forget about the price. For now, I suspect such a len(s) does not exist. Frankly, my super cheap 40-150 on sale for $99 is a really good lens. Period. It is almost always in my bag or on my camera. It takes much sharper images than the 12-200. Frankly, for probably less weight, I can carry the 40-150 F4-5.6, AND the 12-40 F2.8, and cover almost as much the 12-200 in only two lenses; and not much different in weight from the 40-150 plus the 12-40. (maybe 7 oz difference?) But far better image quality.
    I do not consider $750 a small price for a lens. I do agree that technically, going from 12mm to 200mm in one lens is a really big technical accomplishment. At least with my lens, I do not think it does a good job of covering this whole range. I shot this lens a LOT for quite a few months. It now sits in my lens storage cabinet, and I have a 40-150 back on the camera, and maybe the 12-40 or also a 9-18 stuffed in my vest pocket (or mounted on a separate body because one lens does not do it all.) I also think the 40-150 does a decent job of “closeups.” If you forgot your macro lens, or did not want the extra weight, this one does a decent job of getting you up close by stepping back a bit, and going to 150mm. Not ideal, but acceptable. Once you start adding additional lenses for special purposes, you end up, again, with bulk and weight. I usually carry either a 60mm macro, or the 12-50mm macro lens with me. So what I am saying is that you can find much better ways to spend $750 on lenses….. and not have to tell people it i “good for the price.”
