Good kit lens

Jonathan, olympusamerica.com
23 March 2015
  • Summary: Pros Compact size means you can easily fit an E-M10 body and this lens (separate) in your pocket. Respectable build and optics quality. Used it for many months and it served me well from portraits to landscape and even night as well.

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

  • Summary: I got the Olympus Pen EPM2 kit and it came with this lens. PROS: 1. A big positive for this lens, is the small size. This lens is tiny, the pictures do not let you understand how small this lens is. 2.

It's a good lens not a magic wand

Kent, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: This lens is somewhat difficult to review, because for the price it's great! It definitely out performs it's price point. Seriously for $100.00 it's an outstanding lens, but as you add more lenses it will probably send more and more time at the bottom of your camera bag.

Kit lens, and acts like a kit lens

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: The great advantage of this lens is that it is sufficient to get you photographing adequately in a range of circumstances. But if you expect it to be great, you will be greatly disappointed.

Meh!

TL Howard, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for an EP-L1 converted to infrared. This lens is okay, nothing exciting. Will probably sell this item as micro 4/3rds format is not for me.

  • Excerpt: Nice and compact, but the lens cap is tiny. I'll have to tether or i can easily see that thing disappearing.

It's a "kit" lens

Citizen, B&H Photo
4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: It's a "kit" lens, light and certainly not overly fast--good for well lit shooting. I would gladly have paid $5-10 for a metal locking ring. The plastic plate does not inspire confidence.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor plastic locking ring, Weak Casing
