Hi,

Ii have a 45-175. I bought it for use on my G3. It is nice, light, and sharp - except. The shutter on my G3 seemed to be so harsh at speeds around 1/50-1/100 there was image blur/doubling. Fine at other speeds. For me it did not matter if the OIS was on or not. I have subsequently bought a G5 and the lens is excellent when I use the electronic shutter. I don't know if the doubling occurs using the normal shutter on my G5 since it is rather new.

If you can work around the problematic shutter speeds, it's great. Of course the GX1 may be better.

Tom
