Re: Lumix GX1 arrived today - lens was bulkier than expected

To be honest I myself have to take a second look to spot the "X" in the more expensive kit.

The kits come with various lens. You played with one that had the far more expensive LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S., and then bought a camera with the basic 14-42. The lens you like is about $350 at Amazon.

A little more research into what you are buying might be helpful. As for other lens suggestions, the camera works quite well with the 20mm f/1.7 and the 14mm f/2.5. The wide aperture of the 20mm will help you keep your ISO down. The 25mm f/1.4 is great, but very expensive.
