Re: Anybody using a Panny 14-140?

I use a 14-140 on an E-PL1 and (for the past week!) an E-PL2, and I find it an excellent wide-range travel zoom. Although it's heavier than the 14-150 and a wider cylinder, it's still pretty compact. It handles nicely for me. I also carry the 20mm f1.7 for low light and street shots and they compliment each other well.
I tried a 14-150 recently and found the build quality less impressive.

I haven't compared image quality myself, although my reading of the reviews is that the Panny is a little sharper wide open but there's not much difference otherwise. Mine is fully usable at full aperture (which is fortunate considering it's not that wide).
