But if there were problems with then, someone who uses it daily, would know.
The main problem is that the zoom wheel catches, its made of plastic, so feels cheap, very small, and the biggest problem is that its still a kit lens, no matter how you look at it.
But then, the comparrison models (400d and D40x) means that the Zuikon becomes the better choice for lenses. The moment you start to upgrade to better lenses is a whole new set of bon fires. But as kit lenses go, the Olympus kinda gets a head start.... For the money, the extra couple of 100 or 200 on top of the kit means you get
Superior Dust reduction
Better kit lenses
Largest range of lenses avaliable for the 4/3 system AND most compatible with other models (Panasonic, Sigma, Leica, and Olympus all teamed up)
For the kit lenses, you get: FREE BINOCULARS... BIG MUTHERS OF A BINOCULARS!!!!
