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.

  • Summary: This lens came with my E-M5 Elite in a kit. For what I paid it would have been foolish not to get it. It is a very nice little lens. Image quality is actually quite good. Focus speed is good and it is quiet. The only drawbacks I would give it are. 1. Plastic lens mount. 2.

If it is on sale, get it.

  • Summary: You will usually find it at the price of $99-$199 on sale. It is a requirement for every novice photographer, but I don't know exactly for amateurs. It is the type of lens that you will ask yourself why you don't want to use instead of why you should, thus allows novices to question themselves what...

A GREAT VALUE! No, it doesn't compete with a $400 lens. But then again, it shouldn't be expected to!

  • Summary: The 14-42mm II R is a very good, though much maligned kit lens. Many have compared it - unfired - to dedicated prime lenses on DSLRs costing hundreds of dollars more. I wouldn't do that, and I didn't expect that level of quality when I purchased it. I'm still holding on to my DSLR.

Probably one of the best kit zooms ever

  • Summary: The M.Zuiko 14-42 II R is a good lens. It's biggest attraction is it's collapsing design. This seemed fiddly and a bit too delicate for a plastic bodied lens, but it has held up well. It's very lightweight, and fairly sharp across the entire range.

Pretty decent

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for $ new. It`s not the greatest of the range but for the price i think you do get a good value. I think that olympus should and could improve on these kit lenses though.

Excellent small lens.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens with my Blackmagic Pocket Camera. I really like the portability. However if you are using it with a Blackmagic Pocket Camera the focal adjustment is sensitive, so be sure the picture is as sharp as it can get.

Good

  • Excerpt: Got it as kit with the E-PM2. Decent, sharp lens. Not deceived! Also focuses fast and is light. One negative thing, is the cosmetic plastic ring on front, which will fall off very easily. Doesn't look very resistant to falls either, but OK for general use (not safari photography of whatever).
