Excerpt: It's lightweight, compact, smooth, comes with basic lens cap--I've got no complaints--seems like a solid lens and the 14-42 mm is nice essential to have. Plus it look great on the Olympus camera, so that's a nice bonus.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this lens as a companion for the Olymus 40–150mm. I use both on my Panasonic GX7. This lens is compact, well made, and operates smoothly. It works physically, electrically and software wise perfectly with the micro 4/3 Lumix camera.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Operates Smoothly, Well Made
Excerpt: I bought this along with my olympus omd em5 mark ii. For the price, this basic zoom lens covers a nice angle and gives sharp pictures and good colors. Might have been better if this was 12mm-42mm and one stop faster at the long end.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Small
Excerpt: Got this lens along with my olympus em5 mark ii camera. Bundled savings price was $. For that price image quality, AF speed is great. The lens is also light weight. The only issue is olympus dont supply lens hood along with lens like others and lens hood is expensive also.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: This is my standard go-to lens for micro four thirds. It gets the job done in most areas. Sure, there are better, faster lenses in various focal lengths that this lens covers, but this lens covers a good range, and you have the convenience of one lens-- no changing!
Summary: Great little kit lens. Very lightweight, compact lens, offering exceptionally fast & sharp auto focus. Super macro to telephoto shots are very sharp and well focused. I have shots of ladybugs on roses, to my sheltie 100 feet away; all have been exceptional.
Summary: Lenses that come packaged as part of a camera kit are notorious for sub-par performance and build, but the Zuiko Micro Four Thirds (MTF) 14-42mm IIR is a pleasant surprise. From the limited photos I have taken since receiving the lens, pictures seem to come out crisp, with resolution fairly uniform...
Summary: this one in particular is a wonderful little lens. i have owned all the versions of this lens and they are all great lenses for their price point. they all have the ability to deliver super sharp images in the right hands. one would be hard pressed to find a low dollar lens any better.
