Distinguished by its slim pancake form factor, the silver M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ from Olympus is a versatile 28-84mm equivalent zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Despite its compact profile, this lens includes an advanced optical design, which includes aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements to achieve a high degree of sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range. A ZERO coating has also been applied to individual elements to suppress flare and ghosting for high contrast, color-accurate imagery. In addition to the optical design and small size, the lens is also characterized by its Electronic Zoom mechanism, for smooth and constant zoom movements, and a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) AF system that is quick, quiet, and precise to suit both video and photo applications.

So ver said this is a kit lens.?
It's an excellent all purpose lens for landscapes and street photography
Great Lightweight lens
Love it so far! exactly as advertised and a perfect addition to my kit.
This lens functions quite well and it makes my Olympus OM-D E-M10 mark II SUPER-compact. Although not as fast as the prime lenses, this lens makes up for that by its small size and reliability.
A tiny lens that produces sharp images
The main reason I bought this lens is its small size and weight. The camera body I use it with is Olympus E-M5 III, which is small and light. However, these body and lens together do not fit in my jacket or pant pocket as I had hoped and expected, but still I am happy that this body-lens combination produces sharp images.
Much better than I expected
I have this lens on an Olympus Pen F digital and it performs quite well. Adequately sharp for anything I'd use the Pen for. I use full frame and MF digital and MF and LF film and I wouldn't put this lens / camera in the same category image quality wise, but it's a lot easier to put in my pocket when just walking around or scouting for photos. And perfectly fine for anything you just want to put online. I use it with the auto lens cap and I can't see why they don't sell it as a set.
excellent small lens
Terrific for my Olympus Em10 camera
a little gem
This isn't a PRO level lens but what do you expect for $200. It is compact, it is light weight and it complements my travel camera well (E-P7). I have done some tests and while the lens does not come close to the 90mm macro the lens is quite good for what the lens is good for. On my E-P7, I can slip the camera in one pocket and a mini tripod in another (Leofoto MT-03 with an MBH-19 ball head). The zoom range is fine for a travel camera.
A Tiny Giant
This little lens makes it easy to pack and still takes sharp photos. It has enough of a zoom for everyday photos and still fits into a purse or fanny pack. As always, the glass makes all the difference for beautiful photos, even though I'm not a pro.
