Re: Then either it is bad or you have shutter shock.

It is such a handy lens that it can only live in your drawer if it's no good. That can be because you have a bad copy. It can also be because your camera isn't a good combo with this lens because of shutter shock. When you put a good copy of the 14-42X on a camera without shutter shock (or with anti-shock delay like my E-M5) it makes for such a wonderful small combination that it is hard to resist, especially given the bargains you can get on this lens.

Okay, I'll bite.  I think I'll give it a whirl on my E-M5 when the E-M1 is ordered.

What is considered a bargain on this lens, and where are you finding them?
