Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ ED M.Zuiko Digital review by Perry Rhodan

Pros: Very very small. Very sharp for a kitlens. Extremely fast AF on EM10
Cons: No hood. (only 28mm wide ;-)

Incredible. My copy is very good across the board. Does much better compared to my sony 16-50 on my nex6. The AF is so quick, it's lightning fast. The zoom speed can be set in 3 speeds to your liking, works very well. The AF ring is somewhat small, but hey that's what tiny pancake zooms are all about, compromises. In contrast to the new and tiny panasonic 12-32, this oly does have an MF-ring on the lens. The IQ and AF speed look comparable to the pany. Only wishing oly made it 24mm on the wide side. To my surprise it does rather well in macro.
