Pros: a great lens.. light, great hike, all-do for travel, AF RAPIDO,lampshed

Cons: the front upholstery is too easily paraded if we really want to find the hair in the egg. vignette a bit like all 14mm zoom lenses... the important thing is that of the defect you make a virtue of it perfection exists only in paradise XD

Opinion: it is a great lens, crisp, very balanced colors, I always use it and I get dream photos like never before. The surrender is great and has a pat on the ass! IF YOU HAVE TO make yourself a self-portrait with af always takes us ! if you have to make a video it's top there too. In short, it is perhaps the lens that I use the most but above all for yield and for the af che is excellent. if you do not use af there is always analog photography waiting for you :)

Pros: very compact, better yield than the similar Zuiko, exceptional sharpness at 14 mm, mounts filters from 46

Cons: made by lens kit, very "digital", tends to burn the highlights in hard light conditions

Opinion: I have owned several cheap kit targets, the Zuiko 14-42, the Panasonic 14-42 II and the Panasonic 14-45, and I would say we can safely put them in this order of increasing performance. The Panasonic 14-42 II I found it better built than the Zuiko counterpart, plus it has a really high sharpness to 14 mm. On the other hand, the optical performance as the focal points get longer, as opposed to the Panasonic 14-45, which instead gives its best at 45 mm. The 14-45, however, gives warm images and a microcontrast that the other kit lenses do not have. A positive feature of the Panasonic 14-42 II is that it mounts 46 filters, a diameter common to many MFT optics. Overall it is a good kit lens, very light and well built, with good sharpness but let's say it does not have the "magic" of the higher-end optics. Preferable anyway to Zuiko 14-42, in my opinion

Pros: Image quality, low distortion, stabilization, weight.

Cons: Zoom dile that hardens easily with dust.

Opinion: After a year of use and having compared it with a Canon kit lens I can say, that, my 2013 model is much better performing than the competition, especially in distortion. I never missed anything and I snapped quietly at 1/60 freehand. The only problem is the zoom dial that becomes less fluid due to the dust, otherwise it took sea water, sand and rain and always worked properly.

Pros: price, weight, focal range

Cons: Vignetting at TA, plasticky, flare, zoom ring in stuttering

Opinion: a lens absolutely the worst handyman, is lightweight and compact size, sofre terribly flare and vignetting wide open, but is resolved by closing a couple of stops. the zoom ring is a bit 'rigidina and this makes it hard for precision zooming. but after all, considering the price, to use a "tourist" is a lens that makes' his duty. returns saturated colors and sharp images.

Pros: standard zoom very light, portable, weighs practically nothing, quite compact, well clear in all conditions and good color rendering, suitable handyman statement.

Cons: little light, so with reduced blur, attack to the body in plastic, a slight "stiffness" scroll of zooming.

Opinion: One of the best goals economic standards, made in interior very good, quality very cheap price, low cost of used, one of the best standard zoom m4 / 3, together with the Panasonic 14-45 but is a bit 'more cumbersome, especially in relationship to pancake the same brand that is 14-42 12-32, which Olympus brand.
