Excellet lens

By

from Uniontown, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use the lens for outdoor scenes and close-ups of flowers and for indoor photos in low light conditions. Very sharp compared with my old kit lenses.

only way to go!

By

from New York, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

ok, first off.. i use this on my epl-1 with a adapter.. so i dont have total good judgement on focus speed if it were on a 4/3's camera. but, other than that,... i used to have a Canon 60d, with alot of lenses.. and i wanted to make the switch to m4/3rs b/c of i just wanted to change some things up and i liked the smaller size. (body.. not always lenses) so when using the epl-1 (or olympus cameras in general).. i wanted to go all out and get the lens that i will never have to change or think later.. "man.. should i get this lens that is better than mine now?".. so the obvious choices were the 12-60mm and the 14-54.. the 12-60 is alot more.. way too much more IMO.. and i heard alot of negatives about it.. such as soft on the long end and alot of times people need to recalibrate their lens/camera.. so it was a obvious choice to go w/ the 14-54.. and i am very happy i did.. my current combo is the Epl-1,EVF-2 (viewfinder) and 14-54mm .. and my camera looks BOSS.. the lens is very well constructed and it feels great.. like i said i use a epl-1 so my focusing conclusion cant be the best with a adapter.. but from previously using the 14-42 4/3's lens.. its alittle better.. no real complaints during the day w/ good lighting. On low light pictures.. i cant really judge that much on it because im hindered on the fact im using a epl-1 w/ not the best iso performance.. but its pretty good for what i can get out of it. the lens itself is SHARP.. really sharp.. i was very happy w/ my pictures and it was a big step from the 14-42mm 4/3's lens i had before. also its nice to be at 2.8 on the wide end and at 3.5 at the long end.. at 54mm at 3.5 you can get some nice sharp shots w/ some nice bokeh in the shot. construction is really nice too.. built like a tank.. mostly for a tank like body.. im thinking of getting a E-3 or maybe the OM-D. the lens has some weight to it but.. hey.. its built that way. i dont kno how helpful this review is.. but i just want everyone to know I am very happy with my purchase! ... SO GET IT! w/ this. i wont have to buy another walk around lens now. .. unless i get a prime lens.....

Excellent all-around lens

By

from Tyler, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this lens on my E-5 and rate it excellent for overall general use. The image quality is outstanding and I feel that the auto-focus is more than adequate.

Great lense, love the f2.8

By

from Charlotte, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was looking for a bigger aperature replacement for my 14-42mm kit lens, this is just right, allows a noticable amount of telephoto to the end. The 12-60mm would have been nice too, but not so nice to the wallet. So the 14-54mm II is a good replacement in the lack of money scenario. If you have the cash to blow, I recommend the 12-60mm, especially if you have an e-3/30, but for us E520 users, the 14-54mm does great at almost half the cost. It's nice and weather sealed, so I'm not afraid to take it out in the rain, while I fear for my e-520 body, but I always put some plastic bagging over the body to protect it, it's pretty freeing to know I can take it out and not worry too much about it. Zoom is smooth, focus is by wire, which is how most OLY lenses are, so that would be the only advantage really the 12-60mm has aside from SWD motor. Overall, I'm glad I I got it, it has improved my ability to take photos, i've taken some near-macro shots that look amazing with this lens so far, so I feel it is very versatile.

Olympus 14-54mm from Adorama

By

from San Jose, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This lens has replaced a dimmer and less contrast 14-42 mm kit lens. The focusing is faster and also it easier to focus manually with this lens. The lens is heavier than the kit lens 14-42 but the positive the camera is more stable with this lens attached. I would recommend this lens to my friends with no hesitation. Leo

By

from San Diego  -  Photo Enthusiast

The olympus 14-54 is a great overall lens gives great details every time, not to great for low light this lens should be given out instead of the olympus 14-42 (a good basic lens) worth the money you can pick it up at adorama for .....

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JONATHAN H  I had become dissatisfied with the kit lens. This one is much better and well worth the money.
Tom B  Does this lens work with the Olympus Pen Lite Elp5?
ANDREW A  Tom - You canuse this lens on a Pen-Micro 4/3 camera, but you need an mmf-3 adaptor. I use this setup on my OMD 5 and it works great. That being said, you may be better off just buying the olympus 12-40mm, f2.8 made for micro 4/3. This setup will be smaller than the oly 14-54mm with the adapotr. Cost is similar $600 and $200 for 14-54 vs $900 for 12-40mm.
Tom B  Thanks Andrew, that's a great recomendation and makes perfect sense. I had no clue how much the adapter costs.
Shopper  will it fit my e-620?
JONATHAN H  I use mine with exactly that Camera. So yes it fits. It is a great lens, almost one only needs that and the 50-200 lens. Jonathan
