pana 14-42 z with gx1?
Jul 4, 2013

Hi all,

Newcomer to this forum and dpreview. Recently decided to upgrade from my iphone, and so picked up the gx1 from roberts camera for $200. Also bought a used 14-42 pz off of ebay, but have yet to get my hands on it. I've been reading around and there has been a lot of talk about the pz not being able to focus. There's also been some mention that this was only the case with older models / pre-firmware update. Is anyone able to clarify the situation with this lens used alongside the GX1? Have I made a mistake in purchasing this lens?

(I've so far purchased the pz 14-42, pana 45-150mm used, and a legacy canon fd 25mm 1.4 with adapter. I bought the pz because I wanted something very compact, that could almost replace a compact camera, so I am willing to compromise a little bit.)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
