Overview

M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ at a Glance

This extremely portable 3X Electronic Zoom pancake-style lens complements the compact design of any PEN or OM-D body. Less than 1 inch thick and packed with sophisticated lens technology, this lens features an MSC focusing mechanism for near silent operation. The Electronic Retraction feature automatically extends and retracts the lens when the camera is powered on or off. And the two-step variable Electronic Zoom delivers smooth consistent zooming control that’s especially desirable when shooting HD movies. An auto-opening protective lens cap is optionally available.

    The key advantage of the M. Zuiko 14-42mm EZ is its portability. You can capture a broad range of images – from wide-angle landscapes to portraits and architecture – without lugging around multiple lenses – it is an awesome travel lens. And a compact camera like an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II coupled with the 14-42mm EZ is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket, so you’re always ready for the next photo opp. This is also an especially good lens for video.

  • 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 focuses.

  • GREAT LENS FOR SHOOTING VIDEO

    This is an especially good lens for video. You can track moving subjects with the smooth two speed zoom so there are no abrupt transitions as your distance from the action changes.

Neat little lens
This lens is so compact, that it's a joy to carry around. The quality seems quite good, especially for such a compact lens. It focuses quickly and accurately, and I haven't noticed any lack of sharpness. I'm not sure how much I like the power zoom, manual zoom just seems more natural to me. Nonetheless, I really like having this lens in my kit. I waivered between 4 or 5 stars. In the end, I have to go with 5. It is really amazing quality for its compact size.

Compact and good
Size and portability matters. I took this lens with me on a month long, trip to Italy. One month. One carry on suitcase. My friends with full sized cameras (and heavy bags) decided each day whether to carry their cameras. I put my OMD and this lens into my purse. Or tucked under my jacket. On the train, up the hill, through the market, on the boat, on the hike, into the stores - whereever. It was lightweight, unobtrusive and delivered great quality.

Nice very small and versatile lens
I guess the saying is true: The best camera - is the one you have with you. Combined with a pen camera you will get a system that is almost pocket able. You press the on button of the camera - the lens drives into position the automatic lens cap (optional accessory ) opens and here you go. Picture quality may lag behind prime lenses, but not much and you are still going to be in a different ball park compared to phone cameras
