I have a GX1 with the Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS power lens.What is the best lens for this camera for outdoor youth soccer shots? Would also like it to be a versatile lens for everyday, zoom-happy, outdoor shooting.I apologize if this sounds terse. I am trying to learn more about this camera and the Micro 4/3 system, but I have a lot of learning to do!
