The lens itself functions better than I expected for a kit lens

  • Summary: I got the Import model in silver. Came in a totally nondescript box but it was very well bubble wrapped and for all intents it works. It was missing the little plastic protective sticker that most lens caps ship with but seeing as most folks discard that within 2.8 secs of opening it really wasnt missed. No scratches or signs of wear. The lens itself functions better than I expected for a kit lens. But also doesn't hold a candle to a good prime.

The service through Amazon was great as always

  • Summary: The service through Amazon was great as always. As far as the lens goes, i love the convenience and for that it's stayed on my camera almost exclusively but i do wish it were a little sharper.

Great as a carry around outdoors in good light

  • Summary: Great as a carry around outdoors in good light. You can't realistically expect anything more from such a lightweight lens.

Disappointing opticallly it's OK just OK

  • Summary: Beautifully made , delightfully compact and with a fantastic auto lenscap there is much to like until you analyse the results. I've tried two samples now and although the performance will please the happy snapper brigade it won't cut the mustard with serious amateurs. Limit print size to A4 and it's fine but I'm looking to print at 20x30 inches and this is not the lens to use.Try to find some Full Size samples on the web to see for yourself.

Great little lens

S. Luckhurst, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a recent convert to a CSC camera coming from a semi-pro DSLR. This is a great little lens for travel which was my primary purpose for it. I have an OM-D E-M1 with a 12-40 f2.8 Pro lens on most of the time which is just a bit big for snapping on days out. As a comparison to the 12-40 f2.8 this lens is relatively soft focus-wise and lacks some contrast, especially indoors.

Kompaktheit zu Lasten der Bildqualität

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 December 2014
  • Summary: Das Objektiv macht aus einer PEN oder M10 eine Jackentaschen taugliche Kamera. Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist hervorragend. Der elektrische Zoom ist eine nette Zugabe, wenn auch nicht unbedingt nötig. Die AF-Geschwindigkeit ist gut und gibt kaum Anlass zur Kritik. Die Bildschärfe ist o.k. und reicht für kleinere Abzüge aus. Kontraste und Farben sind gut.

Winzig-Zoom mit guter Leistung

O. Geibel, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe das Olympus 14-42 EZ zusammen mit der E-M10 bekommen und finde es unglaublich, wie klein man auf KB umgerechnet 28-84mm inzwischen packen kann. Dass der Hersteller dabei Kompromisse machen muss, ist absolut logisch. So kann es von Schärfe und Lichtstärke her natürlich nicht mit dem vergleichsweise fetten Brocken M.Zuiko 12-40mm 2,8 mithalten. Dennoch würde ich mein Exemplar als besser einstufen, als es hier teilweise beschrieben wird.

Knackiger Winzling

Caracalla, Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Das 14-42 EZ kam bei mir als Kit-Zoom mit der E-PL7. Ich habe kurz geschwankt, ob ich nicht das günstigere manuelle Modell nehmen soll, da es mir aber vor allem auf geringe Größe und Kompaktheit ankam, habe ich mich für diese Variante entschieden. Das ist wohl auch die Philosophie, die hinter diesem Glas steckt. Extrem flache Bauweise und dabei die gängigsten Brennweiten vom Weitwinkel bis zum Portraittele abdecken scheint hier das Ziel gewesen zu sein. Doch dazu später.
