Rent a Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6

The black Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens is a mid-range zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras with a 35mm format equivalent focal length of 28-84mm. This is an ideal zoom range for everyday use, providing a moderate wide-angle to short telephoto perspective. With an aperture range of f/3.5-22 this is an extremely versatile lens. 

For enhanced image quality, this lens utilizes three aspherical elements that help reduce optical aberrations and distortion. Also, there is an extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations as well as a super high refractive index element that ensures uniform light transmission and therefore increases sharpness. 

During operation, the 14-42mm EZ lens features a Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system for quick, silent focusing. There is even an electronic zoom mechanism for near silent zoom control during shooting. Additionally, this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 7.9" at 14mm and a front filter thread of 37mm for accessories.

Q & A

Which cameras will this work on?

This will work on the X5 and X5s cameras. It will not work on the X7.

Does this come with a balance ring?

Yes, all of our lenses will come with the appropriate balance ring if needed.

Do I need to rent a camera and gimbal to rent this?

No, you can rent just the lens if you need to. Many people have their own drones and camera and are just looking to try a new lens.

Is this a good lens for shooting video?

We recommend prime lenses for video due to some users experiencing jello. This is a great lens for stills.
