When we bought the Olympus EP-1, we bought the two lens kit including the 14-42mm zoom. Its been sitting unused ever since and today I thought I'd better see what it was like.
It is very good. Surprisingly so. Nice and sharp and with excellent colour and contrast.
All the fuss has been about the 17mm F/2.8 pancake and this small zoom has been largely ignored.
Olympus do have a good reputation for kit zooms and this one keeps up the standard.
I actually liked it more than the 17mm.
