Any thoughts on Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS ?




Didn't know it existed until 5 mins ago!:

http://forums.dpreview.com/previews/...14-42_3p5-5p6/

I'm still considering an Oly 14-150 MFT lens, but thought this looked 'interesting'.

Any thoughts?

it is perfect because it is small but I don't like the focus sistem like compact camera...

Yes, it would be better if you could use the body's 'zoom in buttons' to zoom......

I'm also very impressed by the small size but I'll wait and see a few reviews before I think about getting it, although the 60 cashback deal does make it tempting.
