and I went back and forth over this decision. I've already got enough lenses to get the basic jobs done, but wanted a "all in one" solution for walk around use. I figured I'd wait for the Olympus to hit our shores with the 14-150 but I finally caved and ordered the 14-140 Panasonic. I just love their build quality and frankly have no issues with the added weight and size. Some obsess over this and I don't. I'm used to lugging around several pounds of DSLR gear over the last decade so 1lb isn't any big deal. I'm interested in IQ, and not as nuts about how much weight or size it might add. It's already small enough to make up for not taking a DSLR along. I'll be sure to submit my review and impressions of it when I receive it on Tuesday night. Perhaps even get some snaps off with it.
