Very compact and light, it makes a perfect kit lens for Olympus E-series cameras. Optics are nearly flawless. But with a plastic mount, it’s not the indestructible workhorse of Oly’s past.
Olympus's wide-angle kit lens for the E-510 and E-410, available separately for $250 (street), this is the smallest and lightest digital Zuiko. It and its tele counterpart, the 40-150mm f/4-5.6 Zuiko, are the first interchangeable lenses from Olympus with plastic mounts. With about the same speed and zoom range as the earlier Olympus digital wide-angle kit zoom, the 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6, this new lens (a 24-84mm equivalent) is more than 30 percent lighter and smaller than its already-compact predecessor.
