Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Spanning a versatile zoom range from wide-angle to portrait-length, the black M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R from Olympus is a 28-84mm equivalent lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The optical design uses three aspherical elements to correct for distortion and spherical aberration, in order to achieve notable sharpness and clarity, and these elements help to retain a compact and lightweight form factor. Additionally, the lens also features a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system, which provides fast and near-silent focusing performance to benefit both video and photo applications.

Wide-to-portrait-length zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 28-84mm equivalent focal length range.
Three aspherical elements help to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.
Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R Lens (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and well made I bought this lens as a companion for the Olymus 40150mm. I use both on my Panasonic GX7. This lens is compact, well made, and operates smoothly. It works physically, electrically and software wise perfectly with the micro 4/3 Lumix camera. In comparison with the Sony 16-50 lens on my Sony a6000, the Olympus 14-42 (on the GX7) isn't messy soft around the edges. The Panasonic prime 20mm that came with the camera is my sharpest lens, but is a fixed focal length that is not always useful, so I am glad I have this slightly retro looking little lens. I do use the 40-150mm Olympus lens more. I like its focal length.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The new R Got this lens as a part of the kit with the E-PM1. Offers decent performance that any kit lens would offer. Also, I had the very first version of this lens, and I can tell you that there is a marked improvement in the sound of the AF motor. The previous lens' motor would grind while focusing, and this could be heard in any video footage. The lens is plenty sharp, and resolves well to the 12MP M43 sensor. Nice and light, I like the fact that it collapses down for transport. Of course, the largest aperture of any kit lens will be pokey, and this lens also falls into that category. Close focus is decent. I have an issue with the price of the lens. When bundled with the camera, there are no issues; however, I have no idea what Olympus is thinking, pricing the lens the way it does as a standalone item. Other than that, I have no complaints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent small lens. I use this lens with my Blackmagic Pocket Camera. I really like the portability. However if you are using it with a Blackmagic Pocket Camera the focal adjustment is sensitive, so be sure the picture is as sharp as it can get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for money lens I bought this along with my olympus omd em5 mark ii. For the price, this basic zoom lens covers a nice angle and gives sharp pictures and good colors. Might have been better if this was 12mm-42mm and one stop faster at the long end. Would definitely recommend this as its not expensive and does the job well comparable to other manufacturers kit lens. Some olympus lenses has the lens ring which needs to be unscrewed to use the mount. This one has it and was initially confused how you can attach it. But its nice as it will cover the slots if you are not planning to use hood. Else its simple to just unscrew it. As usual olympus dont supply lens hood with lenses. Best part is lens is so light and small so you will carry it wherever you go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
    Date published: 2017-08-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens This is a great zoom lens that I got with the GH4. The auto focus is pretty quick and reliable. I have found the photos that I have taken with the lens to be very sharp. I think my favorite thing about the lens is the small size. It is so light and portable. I could easily carry this lens around in my pocket. It is always great to have more room in my camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelente producto!! Idea para video, no es un lente muy luminoso para la noche, pero a plena luz del da es excelente. Funciona muy bien.
    Date published: 2016-07-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Got it as kit with the E-PM2. Decent, sharp lens. Not deceived! Also focuses fast and is light. One negative thing, is the cosmetic plastic ring on front, which will fall off very easily. Doesn't look very resistant to falls either, but OK for general use (not safari photography of whatever). What you expect from a kit lens and a little better.
