    I am using the Kit Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ for a quite time now. I have to admit that this lens is a wonderful lens. It is fast, great performance, and as a walk around it is perfect.

    On my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II, it is also great in Low light. Close-Up's no problem at all. You can take a look of many photos I took with this lens: http://cameraswithoutmirrors.com/threads/seen-at-my-hometown.192/page-4

    I bought my E-M10 in order to use my OLY DSLR lens the 14-54 (Do NOT believe it autofocuses slowly on cameras other than the E-M1). The 14-54 works great, but it is a tad big when you want to avoid the size and weight of the lens and if you want to maintain a low profile. I now use the 14-54 when I want the VERY best in image quality without regard to size and weight.

    I have found that the OLYMPUS M.14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R is almost as good optically (not quite, but considering its cost, quite acceptable), but it is very easy to carry and fast in operation. I'm also quite please with the 'kit' 40-150.

    Early on I had an E-PL1 with both of those lenses and was impressed with them as kit lenses. You are making good use of them!
