Another vote for 1670Z. Yes, it is expensive, but I think that you will be as happy with yours as I am with mine. Good versatile zoom range, good IQ, and good size and balance on your camera. And manual zoom!

Thanks.  I really am tempted, but it is hard to part with the money :).

Have the QC issues that some people have complained about been mostly resolved?  Or is it perhaps overblown?

What is your max budget, now and in foreseeable futurefor the complete system? If I were looking for a zoom solution today, I would look into 16-70 and 70-200 duo, for a darn good 24-300mm equiv range at constant f/4. You already have the E35 so that also helps. Then pick up another longer prime (an 85 and potentially a 90-100mm macro are expected soon) and that would make for a complete set up.

If you are budget limited, I see no issue with 18-55+55-210 combo, or 16-50 with the 55-210 for $250 or so.
