However, I am not sure how you manual focus on this lens with Olympus bodies, since there is no manual focus ring…? It is done in software on the GM1. Don’t think Olympus would implement this in their system too.

I hope this isn't the beginning of a trend where Panasonic designs lenses that are crippled in some way when used on Olympus bodies. Not the end of the world since it's a kit lens and still AF's fine, just a niggling concern since I may buy a GM1 as a take-anywhere to compliment my E-M5.

I think it's in both manufacturer's interest to fully exploit the mFT advantage of being able to fully utilize lenses of both companies, finally breaking the head-lock of brand exclusive proprietary mounts in the DSLR world.
