This extremely portable 3X Electronic Zoom pancake-style lens complements the compact design of any PEN or OM-D body. Less than 1 inch thick and packed with sophisticated lens technology, this lens features an MSC focusing mechanism for near silent operation. The Electronic Retraction feature automatically extends and retracts the lens when the camera is powered on or off. And the two-step variable Electronic Zoom delivers smooth consistent zooming control that’s especially desirable when shooting HD movies. An auto-opening protective lens cap is optionally available.
M.Zuiko everyday lenses offer a solution for every shooting situation, whether you need a convenient low-profile lens or a high-powered zoom.
The key advantage of the M. Zuiko 14-42mm EZ is its portability. You can capture a broad range of images – from wide-angle landscapes to portraits and architecture.
The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation.
This is an especially good lens for video. You can track moving subjects with the smooth two speed zoom so there are no abrupt transitions as your distance from the action changes.
