This lens was bought on ebay for £20 and is an absolute bargain, being in almost new condition with a Hoya UV filter included.
I use it with a Sony NEX5n in place of the kit zoom lens. The Zuiko 28mm gives a field of view roughly equiv to a 42mm lens and can be very sharp if correctly focussed.
Focussing took a bit of practice as it is easy to get distance slightly off target (but this isn't a criticism of the lens). As a walk around lens on my NEX in place of the usual Sony kit zooms, this focal length is very useful indeed as it is slightly wide angle.
The build quality is excellent as it is a metal lens but it is still very light in weight and beautifully balanced with my camera. The aperture ring is at the front but I've quickly got used to this. Images are sharp and colours are accurate. I have given it 4/5 stars for quality as there can be very slight softening of the image at the edges at widest aperture.
I was so pleased with the value that I bought another Zuiko lens, the 50mm f1.8 again for about £20. Really enjoying using them both and doing the focus manually again.
Bought this lens as I like these beautiful small and light lenses with good optics to use on my Olympus Pen and Nex bodies via adaptors. Their performance is very good as wide angle lens for landscape fotos but not so for close up pictures, not equipped with a floating system as for example other Om and my Canon FD wide angle lenses have. Anyway the Om lenses are good lenses and some of them excellent.
Probably the best 28mm f/2.8 prime lens I've ever used. I've used the Soligor, Sigma and Vivitar versions but the Olympus 28mm f/2.8 lens had better image quality.
Olympus still make some of the best optical lenses around, and this is one of their finest.
Can't fault it.
