BEST CSC ENTRY LEVEL LENS
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ
This extremely compact (2.4 x 1.9 inches, 3.2 ounces), high-quality yet highly affordable Micro Four Thirds electronic zoom lens from Olympus (equivalent to 28-84mm) is an OM-D E-M10 kit lens that is also available separately. Even when zooming, the MSC technology delivers rapid and nearly silent AF operation for both still and video recording, thanks to its high-precision screw drive system, a high-speed drive motor with precise stop/start controls, fine tolerance guide shafts, and a low focusing optical mass. The lens is constructed of 8 elements in 7 groups with 3 aspherical glass elements. Closest focusing distance is 7.87 inches.
