During the holidays, with this lens, I shoot several photo I'm very pleased with. I'm not going to post, as all of them are family, and I don't post family pics and portraits online. But, hey this tiny lens can shoot lovely pictures, I strongly disagree with the kit-lens snobbery. Some examples I like:

What do you think, does it deserve more time on our m43 bodies or not?

I travel with the EZ on my PL1 emergency backup camera. On sunny days, to save weight and space, I carry it instead of the P14-45, and am satisfied with the results. I'm on my second EZ. I was rarely satisfied with the results from the first one.

I have the 12-40 f2.8, a lens I really love, but I keep this lens capable little beauty, too, and use it when I want a smaller kit. The pictures in this thread show why.

I was in Madrid for a short business trip, I knew I was going to have a few hours to walk in the city and shoot, so packed my EM10 with the 14-42ez only. I believe I have (again) a few examples proving that good results can be achieved with this underrated mini-lens.
