Pros: Compactness even in full extension, lightness, good optical performance if the right specimen happens, unexpected resistance to flares

Cons: The construction is acceptable but I would have preferred it all metal type the 12mm f2 or the 17mm f1.8, electronic zoom speed (still improves a lot by setting "High" from Menu), difficulty docking and unhooking from the bayonet due to the ridiculous thickness the die

Opinion: I have the zoom 2.8 triad but I was looking for something extremely compact and light: considering the very low cost I tried this zoom of which I had read unencouraging opinions. I must say that I was surprised, sharpness not at the level of the Pros but very good also at the corners, both at 14 and 42mm. I believe that being a cheap production there is variability between the specimens, if the edges do not satisfy you I recommend you to try with another copy because mine has a definitely appreciable yield

Pros: Extreme compactness when not operating

Cons: Average output of kit lenses, no lens hood, electric zoom consumes battery

Opinion: Looking for a very compact compact:-) that did not make me lose too much in quality and still allow me to have interchangeable optics as on the SLR I took a kit OM D 10 Mark II inclusive of this lens. The result is achieved, camera and lens mounted you put them anywhere, not in a pocket but in a normal pocket or in a pouch without problems. The optical performance of the lens is sufficient, in the average of the kit optics and it really allows you to walk without weights and clutter. Closing the diaphragm a lot the sharpness is good, otherwise the images are always a bit mixed, especially at the longest focal length. In short, a perspective from which not to expect much and to replace quickly with something better if you are willing to give up the ultra compactness of the Camera + lens set. A note on the zoom drive. It is electrically assisted and the ring on the optic does not rotate completely but behaves as if two buttons are assembled: turning it lightly on one side goes in tele, rotating it slightly on the other goes in wide angle. In essence you can zoom manually but the displacement of the lenses is carried out by the electric motor with consequent energy consumption. The automatic MAF is pretty fast. The stabilization is entrusted to the sensor in the machine body. In conclusion A view that I do not recommend to buy alone, better to take something else. If you take the camera in kit then it is highly recommended because you would buy a really compact system and overall acceptable quality.

Pros: More compact than a fixed lens! Bright enough to be a 3.5-5.6, coupled to the em10 or em5 Pocket machine

Cons: Extends a lot of on (but it is inevitable for the type of goal), has an absurd tendency to balance white towards the gray/beige even under strong sunlight

Opinion: Great lens, it was the first of my fed m43 Kit, and unlike other, a lens that won't sell. WINS hands down on any 18-55 of march more noble, for clarity and compactness. MAF fast enough even in low light, allowed me to take 2 seconds too Freehand into town in the dark by grabbing the moving objects in a precise and clean, I didn't have a real 1:1 comparison but the MAF I think faster than the 12-40 PRO (which is pa ten of my Kit). As quoted in against, pity the absurd tendency to balance white towards the gray/beige even under strong sunlight, nothing irreparable provided you shoot in RAW.

Pros: Compact, sufficiently clear

Cons: In its price range and considered the price, no one!

Opinion: I confirm what was said by the other reviewers, considering the price and compactness the quality is more than adequate! RnAdd that the slowness of the zoom can be exceeded by setting the speed to "high" in the appropriate menu: rnrnMenu -> Utility -> Electronic Zoom Speed -> Still Picture / Movie -> Low / Normal / High

Pros: Compactness, weight, sharpness

Cons: Zoom a little 'lent

Opinion: A good Olympus lens, certainly not excellent (it's a kit lens) but that knows its stuff. Its size is practically nil (it is a pancake) combined with its lightness makes a machine like the OMD M10 practically a compact, which can be in a simple baby carrier. The sharpness is good (especially at 14 mm) and can give beautiful images especially outdoors. To be a kit lens is not bad, especially if you consider its size and weight. Personally, I use it widely in the mountains and everywhere I want a car so light that I forget it. I recommend buying, especially if in a kit.
