The M. Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II (Mk2) Micro 4/3 Lens from Olympus is the standard 3X zoom kit lens, and has been redesigned to be even more compact and lightweight than before. With a digital-dedicated design as well as multi-coating on all lens surfaces, this exceptionally lightweight (5.4 oz/155 g) Micro Four Thirds lens boasts very high imaging performance. Covering wide-angle to a moderate telephoto, this lens is suitable to portrait shooting, day-to-day photography and travel photography.

This "mark 2" (II) version now incorporates the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) design, which makes it ideal for use in both still and video applications. The front element does not rotate when focusing, making life that much easier for polarizer users.
