Panasonic needs a kit lens to include with its cameras for a low price (such as an extra $50 over the body).

If they designed a better one, why be mad at them?

Basically this is Panasonic's fourth slow zoom covering essentially the same range. I think people would prefer to see them put their efforts into something more interesting.

The new lens is primarily designed for people who are buying their first m43 camera and not for people who already own other m43 lenses.

Maybe Panasonic feels that Olympus is doing a good-enough job supplying more advanced m43 lenses?
