How are the recent Pana PZ 14-42X? Anyone purchase lately?

Hi,

I'm on the edge of upgrading my E-PL1 to the GX-1 with the power zoom kit. I wonder if Pana has (silently) fix the issues identified by several sites ( http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicdmcgx1/16 ). IMHO, it seems like QC problems since there are a handful of 14-42X that are 'good' copies.

So, if you recently get the gx-1 set or just the lens, please share your thought on this.

Also, for those who has bad copies, is there anyway to verify it? I will check the set at my local camera shop before buying them. If I understand correctly, the problem is most pronounced when shutter speed 1/60 - 1/200 @ 42mm at any focus distance.
