Olympus 14-42 or Sony 18-55?
Nov 1, 2012

I have damaged my NEX3 and need a new small camera to be used as a point and shoot camera.

I am considering the E-PM2 and the NEX 5N, for "serious work" I use a Canon 5D,  the first one, plus a bunch of lenses.

Another Sony would be OK, but I wasn't completely happy with the kit lens. The borders are weak especially at short distances, so I was wondering is the 14-42 would be a better lens than the sony 18-55.

The bigger Sony sensor will still bring some advantages but the new sensor in the E-PM2  is closing the gap. So my question is which camera will deliver better overall image quality.

Any thought? Anyway used both lenses?
