H-PS14042K is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens Lens works great and with the new G5 it makes an excellent combination. It would be nice if it were a little faster. I may have to look at the 12-35 f2.8 some day!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Purchase Extremely compact and ok for a kit lens with a MAJOR problem that has not been addressed by Panasonic. The lens has a problem with focusing at shutter speeds between 1/160 and 1/200 seconds. The photos are blurred. This is all over the net and Panasonic has done nothing to acknowledge or fix this problem. As of this point in time, I would NOT recommend the purchase of this lens. I could change my opinion if Panasonic makes a software correction or exchange for a new lens that doesn't have this problem.

  • I saw a notice on Panasonic's web site that a firmware update was available for my camera. What is a "firmware update" and is it important that I install it?
    Panasonic may occasionally add a new feature to the camera, or if we discover a minor problem after the camera started selling Panasonic may issue new firmware to make the necessary changes. Any new firmware release includes a description of the changes it makes. If you are having the problem it corrects, or if you want to add the new feature, follow the instructions and install the update. You should always begin the firmware update usong a fully charged battery.
  • Does this lens have full functionality like zoom and auto focus when mounted on OM-D E-M5?
    The lens should work fine. Panasonic has not received any reports of problems when this lens is used with Olympus Micro Four-Third cameras.
