A good "urban" lens
This lens was part of the package I have bought with my EP-3 camera in 2011. With time I have learn to use the M.14-42mm as an urban lens because of its compact size and overall performances. Picture results were supprisely good but it cannot pretend to be at the same levels as the prime lenses. The 14mm wide setting is sometime too narrow especially for interior uses or contextual picturing. I recommend you to add the lens hood that give you a more easy way to handhold the M.14-42mm during your picture taking. Considering the price-point of the lens it is a good starting all-around option for a Pen series model.

Sharp, versatile lens
I purchased on recommendation of a knowledgeable friend when a rare opportunity developed. Weight and bulk was a consideration, and I wanted a better camera & lens to capture the events. This lens did not disappoint me at all! Within its focal range, it provided better images and greater versatility than I expected from a single lens. I'm very pleased, and I recommend it to others. I've since purchased another lens for this system to expand its capabilities, and I intend to purchase others.

It is an ok lens
It is an ok lens, image quality is good. Suitable for everyday use, but since the aperture is small the pictures don't stand out as much. Comes for a cheap price though !

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.

Good kit lens
Pros Compact size means you can easily fit an E-M10 body and this lens (separate) in your pocket. Respectable build and optics quality. Used it for many months and it served me well from portraits to landscape and even night as well. Cons With 3.5 on the fast end I find the bokeh and subject isolation to be a bit lacking for myself (I upgraded to the 12-40 PRO) Not a fan of the small focus ring due to having larger hands, but the size is proportionate to the M4/3 system.
