An Ideal Zoom Range For Everyday Use
The Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ED Zuiko Zoom is a very condensed and feather weight lens that features a zoom range of 3x covering from a medium wide-angle through a more classic telephoto portrait length. It's just about a perfect lens for common every-day photography, and especially mounted on an ultra-compact Olympus E-400 camera.
This 14-42mm features 10 elements within 8 groups, including one ED lens element plus 2 aspherical elements. The 35mm equivalent focal length is 28-84mm.
This is an ideal zoom range for everyday use, providing a moderate wide-angle to short telephoto perspective. With an aperture range of f/3.5-22 this is an extremely versatile lens.
For enhanced image quality, this lens utilizes three aspherical elements that help reduce optical aberrations and distortion. Also, there is an extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations as well as a super high refractive index element that ensures uniform light transmission and therefore increases sharpness.
During operation, the 14-42mm EZ lens features a Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system for quick, silent focusing. There is even an electronic zoom mechanism for near silent zoom control during shooting. Additionally, this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 7.9" at 14mm and a front filter thread of 37mm for accessories.
