I suspect so, but that's a very good thing.

I've seen reports from 14-42X owners of good sharpness, better than the plastic 14-42 ... so if being 'solid' removes all the problems found in 'bad copies' of the X zoom, well that's going to be a great product.

There are also likely to be far less camera & lens combination giving shuttershock or stabilisation blur or whatever.
