    My 5dmk2 broke and so I'm going to be picking up a GH2 to experiment with the video hacks that are buzzing around and will be getting the 20 1.7 lens and the 14-45 lens, which from what I'm reading is a good sharp lens for a kit zoom.

    My question is - is the modern buy it new 14-45 of the same quality as those that came out a few years ago with the GF1 etc? I.E. if I buy new am I getting the same performance or should I look to get a second hand one?

    Since I've been reading the 14-42 is a little softer + plastic mount and therefore I'm essentially just looking to make sure I get the best 14-45 I can, if that's a new one then great! If not will scour ebay!

    I don't believe they changed anything with the 14-45's. What's out there I'd gather is what was made. Is it even in production?

    All I know is the 2nd hand market for the 14-45 resale value was less than I expected, ha. Sucks for me, but great for anyone looking for one =)
