Good everyday lens

  • Excerpt: This is a great choice for an everyday walking around lens. Better build and image quality than the kit lens, it's fast enough for most situations. Not a go to lens for low light, but at 3.5/5.6 you have to expect that.

Great Lens for everyday use

  • Excerpt: I have a number of Olympus and Panasonic prime lenses, yet this is the lens I use the most. While the 14-42 kit lens that came on my G5 is stiff and hard to zoom, this lens is smooth zooming and a lot sharper. Since upgrading to a GX7 I am still getting excellent results with this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Excellent, sharp, light, basic zoom!

  • Excerpt: This should be Panasonic's default kit lens. The quality of the images are really remarkable for a zoom in this price range. I have to believe that part of the reason for this is that it's made in Japan. No, it's not professional grade, but it does the job for us amateurs.

  • Excerpt: I use this on my OMD EM5. The colors and sharpness are reliably good. Autofocus is fine. I use this one for landscapes and walk around shots. I reach for it a lot, and I never thought I would because I've had similar midrange zooms (Canon 24-105) that were boring.

Best Standard Micro 4/3 Zoom

MalcolmL, B&H Photo
9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I can hardly fault this lens. Its sharp except in the very corners where there is a hint of softness wide open. It focuses fast and accurately, the colours are pleasant, CA is there but is a small fraction of what you would expect to see, the micro-contrast is excellent and there macro contrast has...
