I'm seriously thinking of ordering a OMD body and would like to order a zoom lens at the same time. My question is; which 14-42 mm lens (Olympus or Panasonic) would offer the best overall quality for the $$$.

I'm also thinking that starting off with the Panasonic 20 mm pancake lens might be best. Btw, I like shooting street most of the time. Thanks!


I think both Pan or Oly kit lens are fine because they cost about the same. Or you can spend a little more money for a used Panny 14-45mm OIS and this is the best zoom lens you can get for m4/3. Recently I got a Panny 14-42X pancake zoom lens and it is to my surprise is very sharp lens at wide open.
