Watch out - the Oly 14-42 Mk1 is the slowest m43 lens to focus by a long long margin!!

Good point - the Mk I is achingly slow, the Mk IIR is screamingly fast.

I wish I'd read this before.
I thought I'd save a few bucks buying the MkI off eBay (for $60).
It is nice and small and takes good images, but hunts like crazy when focusing.
It's going back on the block today.
