Product Overview

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Olympus in 2014, it has 8 elements in 7 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ is externally-zooming. Olympus has endowed it with power zoom feature, which can be quite useful for videography, but which makes the lens less suitable for stills work (with the unnecessary weight and complexity).
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough".
