Probably one of the best kit zooms ever
The M.Zuiko 14-42 II R is a good lens. It's biggest attraction is it's collapsing design. This seemed fiddly and a bit too delicate for a plastic bodied lens, but it has held up well. It's very lightweight, and fairly sharp across the entire range. Autofocus is very quick, and silent enough to be used in movie mode. While it will never rival the 12-40 pro, this lens is a good enough do-anything lens to learn on or travel with.

Quiet zoom lens
Great shots when there is ample light, in dim or low light conditions due to limitations of the E-P2, you'll really need a flash, especially a TTL flash.

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 !
