  • Olympus 35mm f/3.5 Zuiko Digital Macro

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Clarity, color reproduction, Light Weight, Sharpness
    Slow focus at times, Hunts for focus

    This is the more cost effective Olympus macro lens available for the four thirds system. It is astonishingly sharp with outstanding color reproduction. I can't emphasize enough how wonderful the color is from this lens. Images are very sharp with little, if any, distortion, pincushion, or chromatic aberration. The only knock I can give this lens is it's focus hunting. It can be quite annoying, but is only a problem in macro mode. Regular focusing is pleasant and relatively quick. Great choice for someone who doesn't have the cash to lay down on the pricier 50mm f/2.0 model. Buy it. It's worth the money!

  • Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ED Zuiko Digital

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Light weight, color, sharpness, size
    Slow aperture, plastic mount surface, toy like feel

    I have to say, I am pretty impressed with this little lens. I was really worried I would not like the image quality. I was flat wrong. It does very nice work! The price vs. quality is probably one of the best out there by any manufacturer. Hardly know it's on the camera and is very short from front to back. Yes, other Olympus lenses are better, but that's what photoshop post processing is purchased for. You can tighten up this lenses results and make a very high quality image. Don't worry about having the best, most expensive lens available. It's also about getting used to your equipment and learning your craft. Find the strengths, and use it to your advantage. It still takes a respectable shot indoors with proper light and an image stabilized camera.
