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

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    light, fast, tiny ,very acceptable image quality for a zoom this size
    expensive lens cap , don't expect prime lens image quality

    I am using this lens as walk around lens. It stays on my olympus EPL3 most of the time. used it also on my OM-D . Image quality is absolutely satisfying for this type of lens. they are sharp, and the contrast is good enough. Its "friendly" , feels good too . On the EPL3 it's at its best ( i think because of the lower resolution sensor). i don't compare it to my prime's ( 20mm1.7, 45mm1.8 or 60mm 2.8)
