Light weight, small size, good zoom, ultra silence motor

  • Summary: Got the camera (P-1) with the 17mm (fixed) lens. With this lens I have a zoom, which means I don't have to move to get the right image (just turn the ring). It has a bigger field of view with 14mm (compared to 17mm).

  • Summary: this is a very very good kit lens. it is light and reasonably sharp over the entire range. I have used this lens on my Panasonic G2 and my wife's EPL1 with equal results. The only kit zoom I would rate higher is the Panasonic 14-45 kit zoom that came with the G1 camera.

It's too good for the price. It's a reason to avoid using MF lenses.

  • Summary: This lens is ideal for all purposes. Excellent sharpness in the center of the image to any opening and at all focal lengths. One of the best features is a striking contrast, found only in high-end lenses. It has no noticeable vignetting. Autofocus is acceptable for a kit lens.

  • Summary: This is the usual lens for the Olympus ePen, and works fine. For museum photos, the fixed 17 mm lens is faster.

  • Summary: The newer model of the 14-42 zoom lens, older models were larger and came with metal mounts, new model, smaller, but with plastic mount. ED stands for extra dispersion, all the Oly lens have that now.

  • Summary: The lens is light and compact and the optics are excellent. The lens has no image stabilization built in but with that range it is not really necessary.
