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.
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 – without lugging around multiple lenses – it is an awesome travel lens. And a compact camera like an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II coupled with the 14-42mm EZ is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket, so you’re always ready for the next photo opp. This is also an especially good lens for video.
One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast and nearly silent autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it focuses.
With ten individual lens elements in nine groups, metallic construction and a light weight of just 10.7 oz, this lens is a really advanced piece of engineering. Among these elements you’ll find three ED, or extra-low dispersion, lenses that correct for chromatic aberration, and two HR, or high refractivity, lenses, which correct for spherical aberration. All lens elements feature Olympus’s ZERO coating technology for virtual elimination of ghosts and flares.
Our stacked 20MP BSI Live MOS Sensor is a leap forward for image quality. It uses a revolutionary new way of arranging imaging elements to let more light in while boosting low light performance. Your photos will have breathtaking resolution with low noise and rich dynamic range of expression from shadows to highlights.
