Thom's Mini Review: This is the original kit lens for early Panasonic m4/3 bodies. As such, it's a modestly specified lens. That said, I still find it optically better than the 14-42mm that replaced it, though not as good as the 14-42mm X power lens that's an optional extra. It's the biggest of the three kit lenses, and heaviest, too, which makes it a bit out of place now. It does have an OIS switch on the lens.  No Longer Recommended (newer 14-42mm X is preferred kit lens)
