Why no affordable fast standard zoom?
11 months ago

I've just purchased a Panasonic Lumix GX1.  Have yet for it to turn up yet but it comes with the standard 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 lens.  Nowt wrong with it but I would like something a bit faster.

The 4/3 Zukio Digital 14-52mm f2.8-3.5 was a lovely lens and an affordable one too (around £300 UK).

Why is there no affordable M.4/3 equivalent?  Yes there are fast zooms available but not all of us can afford pro prices!
Am I missing something here or is there really no affordable fast zoom for the micro 4/3 system?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
