Best standard "kit zooms"
15

I know it may not be the most exciting lens in the world . But I must say given its tiny size I am actually quite impressed with the samples I found from the 24-50mm. This kind of performance in a well priced "basic" kit lens { here in the UK it comes in at £291 when bought with the Z5 } not that long ago was unheard of .

Here are some of the samples I found Photographyblog provided raw , ephotozine full size jpegs. Processed to taste . I appreciate that all the top end lenses get the limelight { waiting on the 14-24mm Z myself } but between this the the 24-70mm F/4 and 24-200mm the choices of reasonably priced standard zooms is a real strength.
