I second what Greg said - it's a respectable lens and if you put it on a small body the combination almost becomes a P&S-with-more-control. Its IQ is not quite as good as the 50mm macro or the SHG lenses, but:

1. It is the second least expensive DSLR lens Oly sells
2. It is really small
3. Folks tend to use it for walk-around/street or family event photos, where ultimate IQ is far less important than recording the moment, and when you look at the photo you're not noticing the IQ so much as the moment that was recorded.
4. Did I mention that it is really small?
