  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Handling and features Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this Standard zoom from Olympus for Four Thirds format digital SLRs.
  • Pros: Compact and lightweight, Very good optical performance, Excellent weatherproof build quality, Reasonably priced
  • Cons: Abrupt falloff of illumination towards the corners at 54mm, 'Fly-by-wire' manual focusing is an acquired taste

Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II Review

What Digital Camera
8 December 2009
  • 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.
  • Pros: Wide maximum aperture
  • Cons: Some chromatic aberration
