The olympus zuiko 14-42mm lens is fantastic...for the kit lens, it is sharp, and light. Have used this kit lens only during my trip to Yunna. Pictures were good, although some underexposure problems due to its f 3.5-5.6 The 40-150mm lens is also sharp but did not see the reason for using as I had other lens. Because of the low prices (of resale), keeping this. Now that I have bought more expensive lens, regretted; should have just used kit lens.
Thanks, Zaren, for the good article, and restoring faith in my decision to keep the kit lens.
