Not sure of when you were on the B&H website , but I was just on it and the 14-42 is alive and in stock

He's talking about the 14-42 X lens, which is indeed listed as Discontinued at B&H.

H-FS014042
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH
"Mega O.I.S."

This is the inexpensive standard kit zoom.
It is very similar (physically) to the earlier design 14-45.

H-PS14042
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH
"Power O.I.S."

This is the compact "X" lens, sometimes referred to as Power Zoom or Pancake Zoom.
This is also the lens most commonly accused of having the shutter shock issue.

I saw a notation on B&H that it is temporarily out of stock.
