Re: Panny 14-45 + 45-200 OR 14-140 ?

Since I already own a kit 14-45 lens and the 45-200OIS for my PL1 I wanted a "all in one" lens and opted to go with the Panasonic 14-140OIS. Sure, it is NO lightweight, but is built like a Mercedes and is optically wonderful across it's entire range (at least my copy is). The OIS will come in handy for video use, but otherwise I prefer to use the IBIS. I know some folks have issues with weight and prefer a lighter lens. I'm only interested in the optical and build performance. In THAT regard I don't think the 14-140 has any equals. It may well not be for everyone, but man that sucker is built solid. Nice to have a lens that will address all ones typical shooting needs on an outing.
