It is without a doubt a very nice zoom lens - sharp wide open with very low CA compared to most m43 lenses. My only peeve is that even wide open it has way too much DOF (compared to a FF 24-70/2.8 lens) - which is great for landscape work but not so good for portraits and selective focussing work i.e. when you need a softer background. But this is no fault of the lens of course.
Well it depends on one's definition of "too much" DOF Granted roughly two effective stops of DOF tends to lessen the bokeh effects, but I think I'm finally starting to shy away from just "blasting" the background away all the time like I do with FF, so it doesn't affect me too much. I do get your point, though.
If I start to get the need for selective focusing and/or softer backgrounds, I'll probably pick up a cheap FD 55/1.2 for portraits and a Voigt 35 for general stuff
I like the DOF capabilities with a FF and a 24-70, but I'll be damned if I like the weight and bulk required in getting them!
