Panasonic 14-42 II is excellent. I recently acquired this gem to use with E-M10 during the upcoming vacation. Very sharp Nd contrasty throughout the focal range. Fast focusing, very effective OIS, no purple fringing on Oly body, smooth bokeh at 42mm. Overall, very lightweight and stylish. One of the better values in m43 system currently.
