    Hi, I´m new from Spain, I have an e-pl1 with 14-150mm (kit). I have a question, my 14-150mm lens hasn´t MSC written, I see in some pics and silver colour (mine is black) that 14-150mm have ED AND MSC written. mine only ED.
    is it a MSC too? or there are two versions?

    thanks¡¡¡

    Hi, I found these:
    silver 14-150mm with MSC written (near to ED that all lens show)
    [​IMG]

    black 14-150 without MSC written (only ED)
    [​IMG]

    black 14-150mm with ED and MSC written (not noticeable in this photo, but it´s there)


    maybe, same version (all MSC) but manufacture date different.

    thanks

    I think that MSC refers to the lens being an improved version adapted for better video recording.

    I believe that the differences are only aesthetic and there is only one version of the lens.

    All of the M. Zuiko Olympus 14-150s are technically "MSC" (with silent, faster autofocus). Olympus has not released an improved model. I'm not even convinced that Olympus has even actually released the silver one yet.
