Not special for video.

Panny has an older 45~175 PZ, an internal zoom lens that has been claimed to have higher quality Nano coating and operates on a power zoom mechanism. Because of the power zoom, it is quieter, steadier on zoom action which is optimized for video shooting. It has been recently updated to DUAL IS compatible.

Panny also has a 14~42PZ also for video but is not DUAL IS compatible.

The 45~150 is a low cost smaller size lens. I bought it new for US$120 in gray market. Also it is a DUAL IS compatible lens. When I bought it, 45~175PZ was not DUAL IS compatible yet.

Once the 45~175PZ was more expansive than 45~150. But today they are basically at similar price. I pick 45~150 over 45~175PZ (to replace the large 45~200) because of its smaller size.
