Lens choice: best mid-level small zoom?
Dec 18, 2013

I'm coming up short on conclusive comparisons between the numerous 14-42 options here. I would like to pick one up to throw onto the body from time to time when I don't feel like taking the bigger 14-140. So my first thought was the tiny Lumix X.

But it's twice the price of the current Panasonic kit lens, and since it's also much older (I think?) I am trying to determine if it's still worth the extra price.

And then it seems there's both an Olympus 14-45 and 14-42 too and those can be hard for almost nothing as well. So I'm a little confused on what's what.

The 12-40 & 12-35 are way out of the price equation, this one doesn't need to be too serious.

Are there only these, or are there a few different release versions as well to be aware of? Thanks for any insight.....
