It is *not* the same lens

The lens is not the same as in Olympus ZX-2. This is convergent evolution, not inheritance. Both cameras use the same (sized) sensor and decided on the same focal length range (which is a round number 6 to 24mm for 4x zoom range starting at 28mm equivalent).

Olympus has 6 aspherical elements and in-lens IS. Pentax has 4 aspherical elements with in-body IS. The Olympus maximum aperture is (slightly) larger at larger focal lengths.
