What a cool lens! - Olympus 14-42mm EZ
13

I saved up for a few months to buy this lens, the Olympus pancake 14-42mm EZ. I have plenty of large, bulky, heavy lenses but was hankering for the ability to take a camera in my pocket wherever. On my Olympus E-M10 mk 4 I can do just that.

It was a relatively inexpensive lens, so I wasn’t sure what the quality would be like. It’s really, really sharp. I’m having a ball taking photos the way I would with a phone camera - on the go and incidentally - but with the ability to expose the way I want, frame properly and take RAW photos.

Here are a few of my happy snaps, edited in OM Workspace. They’re not groundbreaking photos, but the first especially shows how sharp this little lens is. It was taken at 14mm with the aperture wide open.
