Ulric -

As I see it..my Pancakes (20mm and 14mm) are certainly not any bigger I'm sure and I'm more than sure they're a lot better than the kit-lens.. as usual a poor f3.5 at best isn't it..and a zoom I don't want..   Frankly it looks to me very much like the old 14-42's they used to use as starters.. not very good and really very little value or attraction if you wanted to buy the kit then sell-on..I certainly wouldn't expect to get much at all for it (the lens) on the UK market.

Either the UK market is very different, or you're vastly underestimating how much you can get for that 12-32mm... There IS some demand for it, just look around these forums, though if it's gone on sale by itself already in Europe you might get slightly less than you would here in the states... Even so, should still be able to get enough off it to account for a good 25% discount on the current GM1 price tho (going by US prices, not sure how much higher it's marked up in EU).
