Any opinions on the non-EZ Oly kit lens?

Yes, I bought the “standard” 14-42 R II, which is “ok”, but once you are used to the small pancake lenses, it feels very bulky and is a nuisance when you always have to first “unlock” it to extend it even to 14mm to take a shot...

I don’t know... just frustrated with Olympus, they just don’t get what it takes to survive in this environment...  If people are moving up from cellphones (yes, by far the most Oly sales are Pen E-PLs or O-MD 10s, not the bulky 1x or 1 II), they want to have to have a good, relatively fast (like iPhone) and compact kit lens....
