It'll work

npydyuan, Amazon

  • Summary: It gets the job done. Imaging capabilities are at least on par with what you'd expect from a kit lens. The E-M10 corrects the wide-angle barrel distortion in camera (JPG), so that's cool. My small complaints: - dumb cheap plastic ring on the front comes off too easily.

Tiny zoom

Dave, B&H Photo
30 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Very useful as a small zoom lens on an E-P5. Not up to the standards of the 12-40mm f/2.8, but I don't think I would ever use that lens on an E-P5 or similar small camera. Surprisingly high quality for a kit zoom and a great deal with the discounts available when we purchased an E-P5.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Small

Small and Powerful

kammerin48, Ebay

  • Summary: This lens is small but it is a beast. On a GH2 it is very snappy. It focuses VERY fast. These units are usually kit lenses that people often overlook. Don't sleep on this Olympus lens because on the right camera it is very impressive.

Excellent len under $145

Nha Hoan Le, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: I like it a lot as a lens kit comes with the camera however I won't pay more than $150 for this lens. I paid $99 for it with the purchasing of the OM-D E-M5. I think it's a reasonable price. I used this type lens before with a Pen PL2 but with the OM-D E-M5, it produce a better photos.

decent, quick to focus, tough.

D. Zeryck, Amazon
5 October 2014
  • Summary: This gave predictable and quick shots (focuses fast) all throughout a long vacation in good to great lighting. They are however not what you'd call 'fast' at 3.5 max aperture and fail utterly at any indoor lighting, as you end up with shutter speeds well under the 1/60 you need without a tripod.

"Please check the status of a lens" after zoom pass 30mm

Dave "Montreal", Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: OK, when I bought my EPL2 back in 2011, it came with a 14-42mm II. It went dead one and half year later with the problem of “please check the status of a lens” prompted once trying to zoom pass 30mm (approx) with long motor noises within the lens.

I like this product! It's my all around lens.

ededil, Amazon

  • Summary: Very good quality lens for the money. Please notice that the picture of this product is in his close possition, so when you are going to take a picture, you need to move the focus ring until it reach his normal position to start focusing, and it will be more than half centimeter larger.
