For use on a m4/3 camera, I think the 14-54mm mkII (CDAF optimised) is the best bet at the moment. It does become a bit big on one of the PENs (with the adapter), but at least it will have the fast focusing. It's a great value/quality lens.

I wouldn't call it fast. Still needs 2+ seconds to focus, in good light.

Hmm... On what camera?

On my e-PL2, it's seldom over 1 second (and usually less), even at the long end in heavy overcast conditions or indoors with moderate lighting.

Had the E-PL1 for a while but returned it. As I recall, the AF speed was similar.
