I guess it just depends. Do you need the closer focus? It is double the reproduction size of the Panny (well, close). It also goes to 40mm, which is not an inconsiderable difference depending on what you are shooting. It also is a constant length where as the Panny is a dust pumper (made up term). The weather sealing may also be better on the Olympus, but that is pure conjecture, I have heard of no problems with the Panasonic's weather sealing.


Just curious: Where did you find the Oly is an internal zoom lens?

I would like to know this also - it would be nice but I have not read that anywhere yet.
