After much drooling and wanting, I have finally won a bid on a 14-54. Seems they're finally getting within reach of us mere hobbyist mortals, as I got it for £143. Only a year ago I would have been looking at paying over £300.

Annoyingly only a few days ago I missed an E-1 and 14-54 combo that went for just over £100.

I'm looking forward to getting some shots with my E-420.

Using Olympus E-420 and Apple Mac Mini '09.

From everything I have heard, that is a very fine lens.  Enjoy the purchase.  Should a new camera come about that utilizes these lenses, such prices will not hold.  Simple, basic economics of supply and demand.
