Overview

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

Smaller and lighter than standard SLR lenses thanks to the Micro Four Thirds format, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II (35mm equivalent focal length: 28-84mm) lens provides full 3x zoom performance in a very small package. 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.

Light but Versatile
You can't really beat this for a bundled lens. It came bundled with my E-M5, and when first starting out, it is a neat little lens. Although the aperture leaves something to be desired, that is to be expected from a kit lens. Definitely satisfied and even though i've upgraded to other lenses, this never leaves my bag.

Capable
This lens came with my Pen and I am very happy with it. It works great for UW photography when diving new places and I am not sure what I may be shooting at first. It is also small enough, compared to my full frame street lens, to carry around with me during the day regardless where I am. For what it is I am very happy with it!

Great Starter Lens
This lens came bundled with my Olympus Pen 6. It's a nice walk around lens and quite useful. As I learn more I hope to use it to its fullest potential. Even as a newbie I've been able to take some nice photos.
