The Panasonic 20mm lens proves you wrong.

You are giving me anecdotal evidence of one lens. Sorry, that is not convincing. In addition, even that lens has significant pre-correction distortions which results in degraded post-correction corners ( http://www.photozone.de/olympus--four-thirds-lens-tests/464-pana_20_17?start=1 ). And what about the rest of the lenses? 40 mm equivalent focal length is hardly a great selection.

The fact my m43 kit lens is sharper than my Canon kit lens proves you wrong.

I had the 14-45 mm lens on my G1, and I get to differ. It is an average consumer lens with strong pre-correction distortions. I have not used Canon kit lens, so I cannot comment. I also had the 45-200 lens, and it did not impress me either, to be polite. Now, they are inexpensive, so for the price, I suppose they are decent values. But then we are talking about consumer grade, and I was talking about high quality, even if it means higher prices. Those options are available only when you go to legacy lenses through adapters (see my previous post).
