Is it still worth buying the Panasonic 14-45mm lens separately?

There's one available on the reputable used store KEH as we speak:

Yes, KEH is excellent. They have a very conservative lens rating system and clear and concise descriptions of any possible flaws.

I don't do eBay any more unless there's no other choice. I just bought a Nikon ED 300mm f4.5 IF lens from KEH and even though it was rated BGN (bargain) it's in nearly perfect condition cosmetically. Mechanically and optically it is perfect, as far as I can tell.

And DO get the 14-45mm. It's not big. That Nikon 300mm is big!
