Overview

M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R at a Glance

The evolution of this PEN kit lens now focuses faster than ever before, so you won't miss out on rapid shooting situations. Designed for shooting movies as well as stills, this updated lens now features MSC technology for practically silent auto focusing and great movie sound even when zooming. This lightweight and compact lens delivers high image quality and has an excellent close-up shooting capability.

  • MOVIE & STILL COMPATIBLE MECHANISM

    One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. This lens is perfect for tracking action. With MSC, you can film a school play or indoor sporting event in low light and still get excellent results.

  • SHOOT MACRO SHOTS

    The lens provides 3x zoom for long shots and a close focusing distance of about 10 inches, so you can definitely shoot some macro subjects. The middle range of the lens’s focal range is that of a 50mm prime – perfect for general shooting. Maximum aperture is f3.5 at the wide end so you’re only going to need flash in pretty dim conditions.

  • TAKE IT WITH YOU ON THE GO

    The M.Zuiko 14-42mm zoom is an excellent addition to your system if you’re looking for a versatile lens that’s compact enough to take anywhere and suitable for a wide range of photographic situations. It’s just under 2 inches in length, and a so light you might forget you’re carrying it at only 4 ounces in weight.

Good Kit Lens
This lens is good as a kit lens. It is small and offers a good range, with decent picture quality. However, If you are in the market for a micro four thirds lens, I would advise spending a little more and getting a better lens. Since I got some fast prime lenses, I have never used this one except for underwater photography, and that is because this is the only lens I have which is compatible with my housing.

Kit Zoom
Purchased this zoom lens as a kit with camera body pl6 very good zoom lens small light compact for the focal length not as small as a pancake zoom lens but still small an light. Only negative is the plastic lens mount. For the price didn't expect much more and very happy with this lens. Photos are sharp throughout the zoom. It's not a super fast lens but adequate and with good indoor lighting the lens gives good photos without a flash.

Best kit lens available
This is my standard go-to lens for micro four thirds. It gets the job done in most areas. Sure, there are better, faster lenses in various focal lengths that this lens covers, but this lens covers a good range, and you have the convenience of one lens-- no changing! It works great on video too-- silent and no hunting. There is a much smaller version of this lens, but the size of this model is not a concern whatsoever.
