The final point is that the lens was advertised as being as good or better than the 14-45mm and even with the one example i have seen on this board where the 14-42X and 14-42 Old model, still might not match the 14-45mm.

The issue is that this lens was advertised as being as good or better than the 14-45. My lens focused well and at 14mm was decent but not close to the 14-45 or 14-140 at anything between 25 to 42mm. If mine was close to the 14-45 I would have kept it. I never had an opportunity to compare the old 14-42 to the 14-45mm so I cannot comment on how my lens performed compared to what i have seen others post. I definitely did not have focus issues or blurry issues as some of the others here have had but this lens is not for me unless there are better copies out there.
