Good, general use lens

liv2xplore, Ebay
27 March 2011
  • Summary: A lens that is adequate to the task of day to day use. The f-stop numbers are a little high which makes action shots a little hard to make. But the auto focus is responsive and pictures are clear.

Very nice kit lens

21 November 2009
  • Summary: This lens, which came with my E-300 a while back, was notable at its release for being a superior kit lens than the competition offered. Olympus made its mark by including superior optics in its consumer level "kits", lenses that a serious photography could use without apology. The replacement for this lens, the 14-42mm, is a bit better optically, but the build quality is not as good.

The stardard in lenses for the Olympus e-300

7 December 2008
  • Summary: If you need to purchase a "normal" lens for your Olympus camera, this is the one. Should you be an old timer who used to have a film SLR camera this is the equivalent of the lens that came with your oldie. Plus, it has a bit of zoom to it also. Not too much, but not too little. Enjoy your camera!

Lightweight, good performing lens

data428, Ebay
6 June 2006
  • Summary: As a starter lens, this is a good choice, though not as fast as the 14-54mm lens, it is half the cost and performs adequately through its focal range. Focus is fast and responsive and its wide angle field is quite good for a lens in the price point. I would recommend it as a general purpose lens but users should consider another powerful telephoto as this one's realized 90mm (35mm standard) is inadequate for anything beyond medium wide angle to portrait imaging.
