I just got my 14-42EZ and honestly I am on the fence, the image quality is fine but the power zoom is going to take getting used to. I understand they had to do a PZ so one could zoom via the smartphone (which does work, btw) but it is definitely weird in use.

If I'm not mistaken with the Panasonic lens there will be no way to manual focus at all.

While that sounds like a disadvantage, I cannot recall when I last manually focused an AF lens, unless it was shooting the moon. I have used AF lenses in manual focus mode with back button focus, but that's still AF.

Here are some tests run by PC Magazine on kit lenses.

Olympus 14-42 II

Olympus EZ 14-42

Panasonic 12-32

Maybe it's a good time to pick up the Oly 25mm now for the discounted $299, and buy the 12-32 later.
