Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II AF
24 December 2010
Excerpt: Leave it to Lens-master Olympus to offer the fastest (and, at $600, street, the priciest) kit lens today -- with the closest focusing of any comparable zoom. A step-up option for the E-30, this 28-108mm full-frame equivalent has more reach than Oly's standard 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 kit zoom. And it's a remake of an earlier lens, with a circular aperture for smoother edges in defocused areas and seals to resist splashes and dust.
Excerpt: Four-Thirds lenses are always deceptive by virtue of their compact proportions. The Zuiko 14-54mm is no exception and is classified by Olympus as a pro-spec lens, which makes its relatively modest on-the-street price an even nicer surprise.
