I do love the panny 14-45 and the 45-200 for handling and speed, but the lack of ED 'type' glass lets them down badly.

I must confess I was wrong. Beleive it or not, I was giving Panasonic the benefit of the doubt and merely thought they were not using ED glass. But is is obviously just down to bad lens design.

I own not quite matched, but similar ED and non ED lenses in various sizes and am familiar with how different the images look. I am shocked to be informed that these contain ED elements (sorry they state lenses), as there is some weird anomalies that are normally associated with non ED front elements.
