innovaeditor/assets/Blog/FP160002.JPG

innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD310021r.JPG

Having just tested the Olympus 14-42 f3.5-5.6 EZ I was expecting the same sort of performance from this lens. Lets just look at these two for a minute; both are 14-42mm, both are f3.5-5.6 and both have a power zoom (or electronic zoom). Lets see the specs for the lens:

Olympus 14-42 EZ f3.5-5.6


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD310012.JPG

Nice and compact, very light and allows you to put this, attached to an Olympus E-M10 or E-M10 II, in your jacket pocket. All the lens has on the outside is the zoom ring, and that is it.

innovaeditor/assets/Blog/PEN_EZ-M1250_black.jpg

This lens (or my copy) can't be described as Olympus' greatest achievement. I think this was the kit lens with one of the earliest EM models. Forgot which but it doesn't really matter.

Micro Four-Thirds Musings


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/P1000677sf.jpg
