Kit lenses get a bad rap, but are fine for general photography. No one has ever looked at a photo of mine and said, "Hmm ... kit lens!" True - I generally these days use higher-quality lenses, with wide apertures,, but i got a lot of good photos with this lens, and for general-purpose photography it's a fine general-purpose lens!

This lens is excellent for its price, above the competition. I bought it second hand after shooting with a 14-54 for 2 years and you have to blow the photo full resolution to see the difference. OK the 14-54 is 20% clearer, sharper and 50% more solidly built but this little and light 14-42 is perfect for a E620 or m4/3 with adapter and it never gets in the way.
