Re: Which one to sell?

Both lenses are optically very good.  I prefer the 14-54 (which is on my E-1) because it's faster, more rugged, weather sealed, has a little more telephoto reach, and is slightly better optically.  But, it's also heavier. The 14-54 seems to focus faster, but not by much.  (My son-in-law and nephew both have the 14-42 for their E-5xx cameras).  When I bought the E-5, I also got the 12-60 and now the 14-54 doesn't get much use.  However, it's still a great lens.

So, here is how I would handle this if I was in your shoes:  Since I have an E-1 and an E-5, I would keep the 14-54 for the reasons I gave above and sell the 14-42.  However, if I had an E-420 like you, I would most likely keep the 14-42 for its size and sell the 14-54.
