"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.

Olympus Zuiko 14-42 paper weights

Paul Heimnick, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: This is the 2nd 14-43 lens that I have purchased for my EPL-2. Both lenses functioned almost exactly until the warranty expired and then started the "check the status of a lens" message. This is Zuikoese for "Buy a new lens." I have tried all the "fixes on the internet with no success.

Appears USED and is DEFECTIVE

EILEEN F PODER, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: This lens arrived thrown into a shipping box with no Olympus box, no warranty, no instructions. I kept it several days as it was actually a gift to me from my husband. We ordered the lens attachments that are made to attach to this lens.

  • Summary: for taking photos, 14-42 mm kit lens by olympus for pm2 is one of the worst out there... NOT SHARP at all be ready for massive photoshopping of ALL your photos might as well get a tiny compact camera at half price, it is much sharper.
