This lens produces very sharp images and with very good contrast and colour. It is a little soft wide open. The lens is compact and light. Bokeh is good. This was a very popular focal lenght (135mm) in the days of lore but a little long on 4/3. (270mm). There is about 270 degrees of rotation on the focal ring allowing accurate focus. I did not notice any distortion or chromatic abberation. Almost a twin to the Vivitar 135mm. It is a touch larger and heavier but the same basic design. Very simular results
