Best cheap Olympus kit lens

This lens is only $129 online. For that you get a weatherproof lens, with a choice of electric or manual zoom, a real macro switch to allow macro use, an extra function button, in a kit lens that zooms from 12mm to 50mm.

For $500, this would not be such a deal.

For $129, this lens is a screaming bargain and the best cheap Olympus kit lens, by a wide margin.

It' about the same size as the 40-150R kit telephoto.

It takes beautiful photographs, it's cheap, and it has lots of extra features.

What more, could you ask for, in a $129 lens?
