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. - this may be petty, but the aesthetics--meh.

decent, quick to focus, tough.

  • 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.

  • Summary: The lens was as represented and it arrived on schedule. It appeared to be new or little used and it works great with my camera. The photos are clear and sharp.

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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

A decent lens. worth to keep for daily walk arounds

  • Summary: Produces fairly sharp images even though its a kit lens. Decent walk around lens for daily purposes. I bought this to fit the Wcon-P01 wide converter, which my older 14-42 V1 couldn't mount. A new EZ slim version is out, so the market price for this vII has dropped quite a bit.

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.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Good

Rolfen, B&H Photo

  • 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). What you expect from a kit lens and a little better.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp

Quiet zoom lens

  • Summary: Great shots when there is ample light, in dim or low light conditions due to limitations of the E-P2, you'll really need a flash, especially a TTL flash.
