Does The Trick

I used this lens with my Pen 6 for over a year now. It was part of a kit purchased at B&H. Overall, it is a good lens that does its job. I like its light compact size for a short zoom, which is great for street photography. I also use it for my fine art work as well. In fact, I use this lens for the bulk of my shooting with the Pen 6. My only issue with the lens are that I wish it was faster (f/3.5 would do)-especially when working in lower light. Overall, this is a decent lens for the money.

A great lens for the price. Just got it recently and it's been good so far. Sharp and made my camera more manejable as this lens is low weight and is small in size. I cannot comment much on the durability as I got it a bit over a week ago. It doesn't seem as sturdy as the Pana 14-140mm but it still seems well made. So far very happy with it.

Excelente producto!!

A three because the lens performed well. Really I bought two of those lenses with E-Pl3 bodies and in less than a year I received Lens error messages. None works on either camera. Luckily I purchased a 40-150 lens. I cannot recommend that lens for durability. Because I have 2 bodies I am wondering if i should purchase another or a fixed focus. I need a lens to cover the wider focal lengths.

Its ok for a kit lens in one of those bundles where you pay 100$ extra (vs the body alone) and get the lens with body for a standalone just get the pancake version its got a metal ring more or less the same specs and is practical for vacations so people don't see your large lens sticking out showing everyone you have a real camera not just a point and shoot.

Terrific little lens

does this lens has electric zoom motor? can be zoom through camera button, or only zoom by hands?
Asked by: Ariel
This is a manual zoom lens only. You have to control the zoom by hand. For a lens with a Servo Zoom on it we suggest the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens, B&H # PA144235XS. https://bhpho.to/2omLPck

question

Is this lens supposed to lock up before you want to zoom? Mine is only locking after I'm in the zoom mode and when I want to close it? I thought it should lock up after I close it also.
Asked by: Dan
Dan, the lock only works when you're closing the lens all the way down. I guess this is to keep you in the adjustable range while the lens is in use.(?) Enjoy this lens. Kit lenses don't get a lot of love, but this one is pretty darn good.

question

What is the difference between this Olympus 14-42mm 'R' lens and the 14-42 mm without the 'R'?
Asked by: oona p.
Olympus has made three versions of this lens. The original 14-42mm, the 14-42mm EZ (which is a compact version with less glass) and then the 14-42mm II R which is a revision (or updated) from the original. Roughly the same size as the original but lighter. Hope this helps.
