So glad I came across this post. I had already decided to go out and buy the Panasonic pancake PZ 14-42mm f/3.5 tomorrow but read this interesting post just now.

I want a standard pancake zoom to go on my Olympus E-M10 Mark II.

I can buy either of these lenses for about the same price.

Can anyone comment on the comparative image quality of the Panasonic 12-32mm Vs the Panasonic PZ 14-42 please.

Is there a disadvantage in using either of these lenses on the E-M10 MarkII?

Best wishes,

I think the general consensus is that the 12-32 is a little better. Might get more of a sharpening benefit in-camer too with it being newer. Below is an image comparing the resolution of some zooms which was shared on this website. As you will see it is very close with them next to each other.
