And as I said when he wrote the first post, isn't it a measure of success if you decide to keep it. In a way he knew it was good for what it was designed, in a subconscious way, but his conscious mind couldn't understand what this lens was for. Still, not a great lens, but does well for what it was designed for. This looks like the kit lens all over again. When it was out there was a lot of people complaining about sharpness. Now it is considered a very good lens for a kit lens (FOR A KIT LENS). The same will happen with the power zoom.

But apparently not quite as good as the Pana. m43 14-42 PZ it was modeled after.

I had it (14-42) before with OMD and two samples I tried were just horrible.

Yes, the 14-42 X PZ works best with Pana. bodies, not OMD. But there could still be purple fringing. Anyhow it's the outstanding 20/1.7 that I'm interested in.

It must be inevitable that Pancake zooms are going to be somewhat compromised.
