The Panasonic 14-42mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. Lumix G Vario is an update to the original G1-system kit lens, slightly smaller and lighter, and with a 3mm reduction in its longest focal length. Actually introduced with the G2, we didn’t have an opportunity to test it when we reviewed that camera, but received a copy of this lens with the G3 body. The design removes the exterior switch to control image stabilization, making it controlled completely from the body as well, it services the newer continuously variable aperture, used to great effect in movie mode.

The lens offers focal lengths equivalent to 28-84mm, in 35mm film terms.
Good sharpness wide open, and excellent stopped down a little. Given that it’s the kit lens to a G3 package, you’ll probably find yourself with one of these lens just by buying into the system, and then it became a question of whether to stay with the kit lens.
