I'll have to shoot a lot more with it, but in this range I've always been a prime guy. I have no plans to purchase this lens, but I wanted to review it, which is why I went the rental route. I've owned a ton of standard zooms, and I always use them for a month or so and then they sit on a shelf the rest of the time until I sell them, so I've now resolved to essentially never purchase a standard zoom for more than about $300.
That said, from what I've seen so far, it's a very nice lens. If you like shooting with a standard zoom and can stomach the cost, it's a great option.
It's large for a m4/3 lens, but it's not huge. It's about the size of the 7-14, I'd say. Really lovely build and mechanical action, though. It's plastic, but very high tolerances. Feels like the 24-105L if I am remembering how that lens felt correctly. (though much smaller)
