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.

The 14 is smaller, the 20 is bigger. But the kit lens goes to 12 and is actually lighter and smaller than the Olympus 12 mm prime. It has OIS too, so I would say it can be used in relatively low light despite the f/3.5 aperture.
