Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6

Rating: 4.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 5

Manufacturer's Description:



"This 3x standard zoom lens is the smallest and lightest in its class* and features a closest focusing distance of only 25cm. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two aspherical lens elements correct aberrations without increasing lens dimensions. The circular aperture diaphragm enables beautiful defocusing - one of the big advantages of this lens. Excellent mobility is assured by a weight of less than 190 grams. (*As at June 2006)"
