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).

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
