I have the 14-42 II (kit - with my E-PM2) and the lens wobbles...

Probably nothing to worry about. All of the plastic collapsing Olympus zooms have some flex, even the 9-18 zoom which sells for $599. The  14-42 II is still much stiffer than than the original 14-42, which had 3 tubes compared to the two tubs on the current model.

Sample variation on the 14-42 zooms likely has more to do with image quality than the design. I have both the old and newer versions and the main difference is the focus speeds.
