Photozone (Click here) posted a full review of the Olympus 14-150mm lens: “The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4-5.6 is an acceptable “high-power 10.7x zoom” but don’t expect magic from it. The delivered center resolution is actually pretty decent across the range whereas the border and corner performance is not that impressive“. Get the lens here at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay
SLRgear tested the Panasonic 14-42mm kit lens: “good sharpness wide open, and excellent stopped down a little. Given that it’s the kit lens to a G3 package, you’ll probably find yourself with one of these lenses just by buying into the system, and then it’ll become a question of whether to stay with the kit lens, or buy something else. While you’re deciding, you should be able to make excellent photographs.” Get the lens here at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay (Those are all direct search links)
ePhotozine tested the Olympus 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens:”The levels of sharpness it can deliver throughout the zoom range are excellent, especially in the centre of the image area. This coupled with the low levels of CA and distortion make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to expand the zoom range of their Micro Four Thirds camera into telephoto.” Direct search links at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.
ePhotozine also tested the new Olympus PEN Converter Lenses: “All three converters offer a cheaper way of extending the usability of your kit lenses, without adding much bulk to your existing Micro Four Thirds camera kit and they are quite reasonably priced too.”
