|I have about 12 of these, various sorts. Collecting over the last year or so.
Only one so far, has had no vignetting. It is quite fast, too! But as heavy as any 35mm zoom.
All the rest are good to great quality, but have massive vignetting issues. While the longer 16mm lenses will cover the 22mm sensor used in m4/3, zooms are too complex and keep costs down by keeping the sensor size in mind all the time. That said, there seem to be some 25mm, 1 inch, zooms and so far I have found only one.
Given the size of the zooms, I have almost lost interest as they approach 35mm zooms in size and weight, but are much faster and usually have a longer range. I am looking forward to seeing the Nikon EVIL mirrorless to see if they are all compatible with it!
My advice is to hold, but swap for a better one!
