DxOMark just tested the new 14-42 II: Impressive performer
Apr 6, 2013

Apparently it outperforms several of the other kit lenses including the 14-42 PZ and Oly 12-50. And it has the HD designated for what it's worth.

ePhotozine also gave 14-42 II a 4 1/2 star review and it's presented Imatest scores are very impressive.

Anyway, I never really cared for the original 14-42.  Not a bad lens, but nothing special.  The updated 14-42 II certainly has my attention.  Now if I could only find a G5 kitted with it, I'd be all over it.

Cheers, and happy shooting, Markus
