I am not familiar with this particular model, but generally the G-Zuiko was
a very good series of lenses. They were produced during the same period that
Olympus was producing their 1/2 frame cameras which IMHO helped them develop
a lens production capability far in excess of what they were and are
credited for. I used an RC on numerous occaisions along with the 1/2 frames
and found it to be sharp and of high contrast. If memory serves me, it was
subject to a little flare, and therefore benefitted from a lens shade.
