A_less: 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 lengthWhen you zoom, the focal distance is displayed and you can confirm the zoom position.- Step zoomWhen you operate the zoom, the zoom will stop at positions corresponding to predetermined distances.- Zoom resumeWhen you switch the power switch [ON], the zoom positions when you last switched [OFF] are automatically restored.- Selectable zoom speedUsers 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.

Hi! where do I get the firmware hack for the G3?Thanks!
y0010842: I bought my Lumix FT3/TS3 two days ago and filmed a little while sailing. The reflections of sunlight on the water generated ugly vertical stripes in the video. Can someone confirm/reproduce this behavior? You will find an example on my smugmug server: http://smu.gs/nHBTYs .
Looks like sensor blooming, I've got that in ZX1's video clips. Was corrected in later models. Maybe is yours a defect sample?
