Olympus 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 Zuiko Digital review by MichaelShea
27 April 2014
Summary: This will be a short review aimed predominantly at potential second-hand buyers for the micro four thirds system. Let me straight away state that I can thoroughly recommend the lens for stills photography of static subjects.
Pros: Edge to edge sharpness in middle of zoom range, great build, lovely colour rendition
Cons: No real advantages over cheaper offerings at wide end, some chromatic aberrations visible

Summary: This lens is a great lens. I bought this lens used, and it is quite good in terms of image quality, sharp across the frame. It is also relatively cheap and better in comparison to the other manufacturer's offerings in relation to focal length (28-108mm FF equivalent).
Pros: Fast Focus, Build, Weather-Sealed, Relatively Cheap

Summary: Excellent walk-around lens, sits on my E-510 most of the time. The f2.8 is satisfactory most of the time, focusing even at low light levels has not been a problem like the 14-42 kit lens. Overall, a vast improvement.

Summary: I have been using this lens for a year and a half and I couldn't be happier. It brings incredibly sharp results and has a great max aperture. Considering the wide max aperture, the lens is surprisingly small.
Pros: Excellent max aperture, excellent build quality, excellent image quality

Summary: Lens delivers good results at 5,6 - 11 and this at f4.0 .... well so did my Oly kit lens. I bought this for the speed but 2.8 changes to 3.5 rather quickly and shooting 14mm or 54mm at highest aperature doesn't produce any crispness.

Summary: Universal and reliable lens I carry with me all the time. At wide open side (f2.8-3.5) it delivers less then crispy-sharp results. However, starting f4-5 the output becomes to be comparable to fix focus 50mm f2.0. So if light conditions allows it I always close it a bit.
Pros: this Oly kit lens is much much better than kit lenses provided with other manufactures

Summary: I purchased the E-500 after a lot of research and testing. Being relatively new to DSLR I still have lots of questions. I have learned to carry a small note pad to take notes and it really helps me get better.
Pros: Better glass then the kit lens. Almost everything about this lens is prefect and how it interacts with the E-500
Cons: Nothing so far - taking a lot od pictures using different setting

Summary: Having bought the lens with a E-400 body, I'm very happy with it. Image quality is excellent and I really like the feel and handling of the lens. One small problem is that the E-400's pop-up flash gets shaded by the lens at wide angles (less than 18mm) and/or close up.
Pros: image quality, build quality
Cons: shades the pop-up flash on the E-400 at widest angles or up close
