I am a GF1 user and very interested in the 14-42.
Finally pocktable zoom from Pana which can complement the 20mm. I just thing it is sad that Panasonic do not plan to make firmwares for all cams to have full control of the new lenses.

FEATURES NOT SUPPORTED FOR G1, GF1, GH1, G2 (Source: panasonic.net/avc/lumix/popup/pressrelease/x_lens.html at the bottom).

- Display of the local length
When you zoom, the focal distance is displayed and you can confirm the zoom position.
- Step zoom
When you operate the zoom, the zoom will stop at positions corresponding to predetermined distances.
- Zoom resume
When you switch the power switch [ON], the zoom positions when you last switched [OFF] are automatically restored.
- Selectable zoom speed
Users can select the speed of electric-powered zooming.

I think Panasonic should make firmwares available to all, not only new buyers. We can not change body every year.

In reply to:

h00ligan: So...the people that kicked off the market with the gf1, who reject the consumerization and are more than soccer moms.... Bsically get the shaft.

One more reason to move to Olympus or even Sony , panasonic can keep their in lens is and consumer mind set, I'll be moving on for my small camera needs.
