Good kit lens for all occassions

  • 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. The construction is very good, with details like metal mounth, a zoom ring soft but precise. The weaknesses are the lack of sharpness at the edges, especially at full aperture and wide open.

  • 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.

14-42mm, nice kit for m4/3

freedombreeze, Ebay
19 January 2011
  • Summary: Since I have Panasonic GF1 with 20mm lens that couldnt zoom so I consider to buy 14-42mm to make camera more useful. I bought Olympus Zuiko ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 and tried it with my GF1 it is quite impressive combination, light and very good material, fast focus. But since m4/3 camera always double the focal length of the lens this lens is not really wider than 20mm as much as I expected.
