    I have found with my O-14-42 ED MkI, that from the closest range to about 10', it is a stellar performer, further out, it is still a great lens, but a little less micro contrast for finer detail sharpness...

    Very nice. I know I wasn't as impressed with the original 14-42, so maybe the new one is that much better.

    Here are a couple I shot today with the same lens.
    I like them a bit better than the other one due to the details in the eyes (view original size and you can see the lens segments).
    All are hand held and manual focus.

    I think the 14-42mm II is about as good as a kit lens gets.

    Very nice shots. If I hadn't already been convinced about buying the EPM1, these shots would convince me.
