What M43 lacks is a good kit lens
May 30, 2014

As I search for my next camera I am renting various mirrorless models.  My current favorite is the Olympus OM-D E-M10.  However, there is no suitable kit lens.  Either you get a $100 piece of junk with an absurdly slow long end, or you have to buy a pro lens for $1000 which is too big for the M10 body and too slanted towards wide focal lengths.  What is really needed is a 14-45mm or 14-50mm f/2.8-4 zoom of serious quality.  Only Fuji with its 18-55mm for APS-C gets this right (at $700.)  I would happily pay this much for an equally good M43 kit lens for the M10, but no such lens is available.
