REVIEW: Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Micro Four Thirds Zoom Lens Review

 

This standard zoom lens from Panasonic normally comes bundled as a kit with their Micro Four Thirds system cameras, but if you were looking to replace one or purchase one for an Olympus camera it would cost around £170. It covers a range equivalent to...

Good optical quality; Decent build; Fast focusing; Effective optical image stabilisation system

Not as compact as collapsible designs; Plastic lens mount

Overall this optic performs well for one that is bundled as a kit lens and as it it priced lower than other alternatives when bought separately, it offers good value for money as a result.

Great lens for video ! Absolutely silent, fast. But not as good for still pictures - need to use f/9 to achieve best results

Panasonic 14-150mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. Leica D VARIO-ELMAR review by LusVS

 

Use it on an Olympus E-510, which works fine.

Versatile and compact

Some barrel distortion at 14 mm

Panasonic 14-140mm f/4-5.8 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO HD review by Ocean

 

better than Olympus 14-150 mm, but heavy and expensive

small, good build, sun shade, no CAs, very sharp for a zoom

heavy, thick, OIS could be better, no really good near performance

Panasonic 14-140mm f/4-5.8 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO HD review by m43

 

Lens is Sharp and takes very good stills but needs a lot of light because of the starting aperture at F4.0

Good Sharp Lens for stills and good especially for Video

Heavy for Micro Four Thirds, largest aperture is F4 so needs a lot of light

Panasonic 14-50mm f/3.8-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. Leica D VARIO-ELMAR review by abraxusss

 

I must start by stating this lens is as sharp as the Olympus 12-60 mm F2.8-4 ED SWD. The images produced with this lens are simply superb. I have used both lens and prefer the Lecia. If you desire razor sharp images from a lens, this is a must have...

RAZOR SHARP !!! Great image stablization

Panasonic 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by EdO

 

Excellent, versatile lens. Compares favourably with my Nikon and Sigma zooms in this focal range. OIS adds about 2 EV to the shutter speed that is "safe" in my hands. ("Safe" in my book is four of five test images as sharp as on a tripod)

versatile, compact

Panasonic 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by SETI

 

Not much to say - one of the best kit lens I ever saw. 28-90 equivalent of 35mm - very versatile. I love 28mm wide lens and 85-135 portrait lens, so that's what I mean. Of course forget about bokeh =)

Lightweight, sharp, versatile, stabilized
