In part 2 of our review of best lenses for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II (Olympus E-M1 II), we’re looking at the performance of zoom lenses. More versatile than a fixed focal length prime, zoom lenses offer the convenience of a range of focal lengths in a single lens. We’ve tested 20 such lenses on the E-M1 II, covering focal lengths from an ultra-wide-angle 7mm through to a super-telephoto 300mm, equivalent to 14mm to 600mm in 35mm terms. Scores range from a high of 25 points on pro-oriented options such as the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, to a low of 8 points on the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6.
