Olympus 14-42mm EZ

In my latest video I’m taking the M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ kit lens for a spin. This power zoom works also with Lumix cameras and is optically good. It’s a viable option for a Lumix camera with IBIS, if you are fond of power zooms.

Here is the video and below it are some sample photos. Enjoy.

  1. Hi Matti
    From the data I have seen, the older Olympus 14-42 R II is a better cheap lens in the Olympus line up. I have it and it is OK. The Panasonic 12-32mm is also better than the Olympus EZ. The Panny 45-150mm kit lens is also good up to around 100mm. The Olympus 45mm f1.8 when on sale, is a great shooting bargain indeed. And of course the Lumix 25mm f1.7 is good, when avoiding f4 due to focus shifting.

    Have a great year Matti, Loren

  2. Hi, I have both 12-32 and 14-42 ez. They are equally sharp. 14-42 ez is really an underrated lens

  3. Yes it’s a neat little lens, the M.Zuiko 14-42 kit lens on my Olympus PEN E PL2. I do appreciate
    your super sharp images of Helsinki architecture. I haven’t been to Finland yet but my daughter is CFO for Siemens Nokia in N.A. so she has been.
