... it looks as good or better than the 18-55mm lens.

16-50/3.5-5.6 MTF

18-55/2.8-4 MTF

Yes that is interesting. Perhaps its due to the fact the 18-55 goes to F2.8 which I would want over sharper and only F3.5.

Brilliant for a $100 kit lens!

I am confused by the specifications stating different minimum focus distances:

Normal whole zoom position: 0.6m

Macro wide 0.3m

Macro tele 0.4m

What is the difference between normal and macro?

At 100$ with the kit it's the absolute bargain!

The comments of the hand on preview of DPR are very interesting showing the excellent strategic position of the XM1 between EPL5 and EP5 Olys at a very attractive price with a much better sensor (the Oly being already evry good!)
