Return Panasonic 14-45mm for 14-140mm f3.5 - Yay or nay?
May 15, 2014

I am building a new m43 system; the Panasonic 14-45mm zoom lens has arrived last week, and now I am waiting for the arrival of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 body.

However, I am now having second thoughts on what the best solution for my main kit lens should be. Specifically, I am looking at the new Panasonic 14-140mm f3.5-5.6 and it seems like a good all-around solution. It's twice the price, of course, but the convenience should (partially) make up for it.

Question: Do you think it is worth returning the Panasonic 14-45mm and get the 14-140mm instead? Any personal experience/views with regard to their sharpness?

Any help appreciated. Thanks!
