Re: Lumix Vario 45-200mm v.II?

Problem is its IQ is not outstanding at all among other lenses in similar range of reaching, says, the 14~140, the 45~150 and the 45~175PZ.

The different on reaching among 140/150 vs 200 is a step backward most of the time, and basically it is very close to 175. The beauty of others are they could get sharper image on wide open whereas 45~200 needs to stop down to f/7.1~8...

Could be a reason this lens is not as popular as others. I bought 45~150 to replace 45~200.
