Product Overview

Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Olympus in 2011, it has 8 elements in 7 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Olympus has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R is more of a "kit lens" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough".
