M.ZUIKO 14-150mm Lens Review with Test Shots

I’ve recently got my hands on the Olympus 14-150mm M.ZUIKO Micro 4/3 camera lens for the Olympus PEN series of cameras. The lens is being used on the Olympus E-PL1 and so all video/photo content will have been produced using this badass camera & lens unless otherwise stated.

To start, I’d like to point out that I’m not a professional photographer (as many of you will know), but I am picking it up quickly as a hobby. With that in mind, I’m not going to get into all the nitty gritty details that only a camera/photography expert will understand but I will talk about it as the general consumer and technology lover.


A Spider’s Lunch

I saw the most intriguing spider outside as I was taking out the bin bags so I ran back in to get my camera but by the time I got back, it had gone into hiding. Not 5 seconds pass until I see a commotion on my front door between a different spider and a fly! I took some pictures using the Olympus E-PL1’s kit lens (14-42mm). It’s not a macro lens, but it did a pretty good job of capturing a lot of the detail quite vividly. (click any image to see it larger on Flickr)
