Great post, thanks for sharing!

i don’t mind the optics on the XC 15-45 but I can’t get on with the power zoom. Otherwise it would be a neat little travel lens with the long zoom setup you have.

Thanks Neil. The "rocker" style PZ isn't the most intuitive, but - unless in MF mode - the manual focus ring can be used similar to a regular zoom ring. The latter method of zooming feels more natural and made the PZ more stomachable for me.
