DPR verifies buggy 14-42X IS

Well, no one needs to post "user error" or "learn to use your camera" comments anymore. The 14-42X does have problems at the long end in the 1/100th shutter speed range - even with IS off:

I hope they test the 45-175 X as well. It is a shame these otherwise excellent lenses are having problems. Most disturbing the 14-42 has the issue even with IS off!

Maybe DPR can get some results from Panasonic on the issue.
