Essential

  • Excerpt: It's lightweight, compact, smooth, comes with basic lens cap--I've got no complaints--seems like a solid lens and the 14-42 mm is nice essential to have. Plus it look great on the Olympus camera, so that's a nice bonus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: This is a great zoom lens that I got with the GH4. The auto focus is pretty quick and reliable. I have found the photos that I have taken with the lens to be very sharp. I think my favorite thing about the lens is the small size. It is so light and portable.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens as a companion for the Olymus 40–150mm. I use both on my Panasonic GX7. This lens is compact, well made, and operates smoothly. It works physically, electrically and software wise perfectly with the micro 4/3 Lumix camera.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Operates Smoothly, Well Made

Good value for money lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this along with my olympus omd em5 mark ii. For the price, this basic zoom lens covers a nice angle and gives sharp pictures and good colors. Might have been better if this was 12mm-42mm and one stop faster at the long end.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Small
  • Cons: Plastic, Slow Aperture At Long End

Great lens value for money

5 August 2015
  • Excerpt: Got this lens along with my olympus em5 mark ii camera. Bundled savings price was $. For that price image quality, AF speed is great. The lens is also light weight. The only issue is olympus dont supply lens hood along with lens like others and lens hood is expensive also.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: No lens hood, Plastic Feeling

Best kit lens available

  • Summary: This is my standard go-to lens for micro four thirds. It gets the job done in most areas. Sure, there are better, faster lenses in various focal lengths that this lens covers, but this lens covers a good range, and you have the convenience of one lens-- no changing!
